We want to create a clear interpretation of the rules for donating cooked meals and simplify the whole process. Non-served portions that are thrown away in canteens after the end of opening hours can feed a lot of people in need. In addition, the donation of these portions uses the energy and money that has been put into the preparation of meals.
Nowadays, the donation of leftover food is very confusing and complicated for businesses due to disunited information on hygiene requirements and legislative rules. To avoid possible problems, businesses prefer to throw away the food.
The project Donation of food saves the climate runs from 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2022.
