The main mission of SavingFood is to provide a European wide solution for reducing food waste. There are many organisations and grassroots communities around Europe and globally that work towards this end but mainly based on a more traditional approach and without exploiting the power of online networks. SavingFood offers a unique opportunity for them to make their activities more effective and increase their impact. Therefore, the SavingFood platform will be made available through a standard Open Source licence so as to provide the opportunity to interested food rescue organisations to replicate, adopt and use it after the end of the project.
In addition, the project deliverables are open access, so that the methodologies used and lessons learned in SavingFood can be used as a guide for any initiatives of a similar nature and cause.
