The project’s main objective is to create a socially innovative (business) model to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of services dealing with food surplus in order to give an answer to the territorial challenge of the availability of large amounts of food surplus still fit for human consumption, whilst creating jobs/pathways to employment for citizens with low access to the labour market. Where possible, the model supports people in food insecurity.
The change to the current situation is to:
1) create job opportunities/skills for employment for people far from the labour market in handling food surplus for human consumption;
2) create systems covering a larger region for effective food surplus collection and redistribution
3) process new marketable food products made out of food surplus
4) get more fresh and healthy food to people in food insecurity.
We have found already 10 partners in all 4 countries (UK, FR, NL, BE). We are looking for additional interested project partners in the Netherlands or interested observer partners in the UK or France to join this project.
