The Good Food Project

1.3 billion tons of food is thrown away annually in the world. And this is despite the fact that more than 800 million people in the world suffer from hunger. In Russia, more than 18 million tons of food is thrown away every year, and the number of hungry people exceeds 1 million.

One of the solutions to this problem is food sharing. Food sharing is the practice of distributing expiring (but not expired) overproduced food between members of the society using special organizations or online platforms.

GoodFood project was developed within the framework of the “YSP Peace designer programme” dedicated to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Our project is directly related to the 12 UN SDGs, which is responsible consumption and production.  Within the framework of this goal, several areas of work can be distinguished. We have chosen the direction related to the rational use of food. Nowadays the problem of “foodwaste” is widespread.

The idea of ​​our project is to become a kind of intermediaries between organizations that provide food (cafes, restaurants – as we call them, upper organizations) and companies that distribute food to people, for example, the homeless or the poor (lower organizations).
