Food sharing in Wroclaw

Food sharing

Tons of food goes to the trash! What to do to avoid a huge waste of food? Food sharing is one of the answers!

Data shows that about 9 million tons of food is wasted annually in Poland. The value of this food is probably about PLN 50 for each Pole every month. 35% of the food go for disposal. That’s why we should try food sharing.

 

Sharing is a new trend.
Economics based on sharing is a relatively new trend in the economy and society. It involves the direct exchange of goods and services between consumers who mainly communicate via special websites or social media. With the help of this term, the entire spectrum of online businesses have the potential to revolutionize the global market for the exchange of goods and services. Also it can be both non-profit and profitable. However is about exchanging between one man and another. In this Expats in Wroclaw article. I want to focused on NON PROFIT form.

How does it starts?
The first Food Sharing point was opened in May 2016 in Warsaw. Therefore Torun, Cracow, Wroclaw and Poznan followed the idea. Other cities followed them consequently. Social refrigerators in Wroclaw are mostly grow due to the idea of ​​the group WeźPomóż.pl, which promotes the idea of ​​sharing food in Lower Silesia. Anyone who wants can bring food to the fridge. Food will be available in the fridge for those in need. Food sharing points are for everyone – the material status of people who visit it is not checked here. The whole system finally works freely.

What can you put in a shared fridge?
The basic rule: bring what you would eat by yourself.  Home products such as cake or soup must be packed in disposable, sealed containers with the exact date of preparation and description on packaging. Furthermore you can put dry products on special shelf. 

What can you not bring?
Products that contain raw meat, raw eggs, unpainted milk products (unless they are vacuum-packed and have a valid shelf-life) can not be accepted; open canned food or jars with preserves; products that have exceeded the shelf-life date; products with signs of breakage. The rules for products are posted on the front door of the refrigerator too.

Volunteers, companies and food rescuers
All sharing food points function because of volunteers. They are usually young people who, using social media – mainly Facebook – are trying to buy refrigerators, shelves, social signs and also make sure that the place is working properly. In addition volunteers check in this points cleanliness standards, wash it, if there’s a need, bring food or throw out expired products.
