An innovative solution to reduce food waste and fight hunger

Project Description

SavingFood was a CAPS project funded by H2020. The project offered a novel approach to tackle food waste, by turning this environmental issue into an innovative solution to fight hunger through the redistribution of surplus food to welfare organisations that support people in need. Moving forward from existing food redistribution channels SavingFood sought to create a social movement for reducing food waste, by engaging all actors of the food waste cycle to become part of the solution.
