About SavingFood

Food waste represents a global paradox! Whilst approximately a third of the food produced in the world each year is being wasted, at the same time nearly a billion people are unable to cover their daily needs in food.

In this respect, SavingFood offers an innovative and socially responsible solution to the food waste challenge by developing an online networked community of various stakeholders that through collective awareness, knowledge sharing, motivations and incentives, will facilitate the redistribution of surplus food and leftover crops for the benefit of the vulnerable groups of our society.
