Food sharing

Every year, about 18 million tons of food end up in the garbage in Germany, which are still pourable or meet the trade criteria even before they are sold.

Foodsharing was born in Berlin in 2012 from the idea of protecting still edible but no longer saleable food from the bin. Anyone who likes can hand in excess food or pick it up for free.

More information and all Fairteiler in Wuppertal can be found under www.foodsharing.de.

Information for students:

University of Wuppertal/ AStA

The Fairteiler is accessible at the AStA level and currently consists of a refrigerator. Here, at irregular intervals, about once or twice a week, Foodsharing Wuppertal deposits edible, but no longer saleable food from cooperating food companies, such as bakeries or supermarkets. These foods can be accessed by all people during the opening hours of the AStA level (Monday to Saturday 7-22h). The Foodsharing Group takes over the organization of the fair sharer.
