  • Foodsharing Tartu comes from the word Foodsharing.
  • Through Foodsharing, individuals, traders and producers can offer or collect food that would otherwise be thrown away.
  • Foodsharing rescues and distributes leftover food, fighting against food waste.
  • Foodsharing gives rescued food the opportunity to find its way to people who want it, instead of the food ending up in the trash.
  • Tartu Foodsharing aims to reduce the amount of food wasted and broaden the worldview of its fellow citizens.
  • What’s Foodsharing Tartu (FS)?

    Foodsharing Tartu is a movement that saves and distributes leftover food in Tartu, cooperating with individuals, retailers, companies and food producers.

  • The idea comes from Germany, which has a large network of foodsharing points that are organized and developed by thousands of volunteers. The development of such a network is only possible thanks to active people and laws against the generation of food waste. Foodsharing points are marked on a map and information is up on our website.

  • We help distribute leftover food;

    We create and maintain foodsharing points;

    We share information on social media and at schools;

    We are constantly looking for new partners

  • Foodsharing Tartu functions only thanks to the volunteers and people who donate resources necessary to keep it running smoothly and creating/maintaining foodsharing points..
