Our Story

 

Foodsharing is a part of who we are as people as well as the organization as a whole. So far our journey has been very fluid and organic. Many passionate people have joined the movement and given their hearts towards building a more sharing and caring community. Without them we would not be here, likewise current activists are building the future of Foodsharing Copenhagen.

 

We believe in

A world where food is valued and is used to nourish people and bring them together. A world where foodsharing is part of our natural behaviour. Locally and globally.

We are working to

provide everyone (individuals, communities and businesses) with knowledge, tools and power to act, care and share/donate food, without any compromise.

Our Story

Past

The Foodsharing Copenhagen movement was born when Yunity and Foodsharing.de projects from Germany met activists of Denmark in Copenhagen. Without much of a debate the idea of collecting food surplus and sharing with citizens unconditionally resonated with the activists and was adopted. Responsibilities between the activists divided and Foodsharing Copenhagen movement kick-started. Subsequently, with immense support from the residents, the first food sharing (sharepoint) location was established at Floating City, followed by Bioteket. Thus, began a great journey of a community that cares for sharing. A community that reaches out to citizens and businesses, raises awareness on food waste and leads by example on food waste prevention.

The present

  • One of the largest volunteer organisation in Denmark fighting against food waste
