Foodsharing ( Germany)

The food can be collected at the home of the seller or brought to collection points called “hotspots”. Only dishes made of raw eggs and minced meat cannot be exchanged for sanitary reasons. This already very successful initiative is a reaction to the publication by the German Ministry for Nutrition, Agriculture and Consumer Protection, in the spring of 2012, of a study showing that 61% of the 15 million tons of food wasted every year in Germany is being wasted in private homes.
