Partners:

Food retailers, local charities, Food Bank.

Description:

Retailers are offering “last minute” products to the Food Bank, “last minute” meaning a few hours before expiration. Therefore a very quick distribution process is needed, there is even no time to bring the food into the Food Bank warehouse for redistribution. A new model has been developed involving local charities in a direct way where charities do all logistics and the Food Bank manages the process and ensures monitoring.

Costs:

~1000 EUR/year.

Results:

100 tonnes of food from 6 stores in the pilot phase in the value of 25.000 EUR, expected to grow extensively in 2013.

Tips or tricks:

Looking for strong and flexible local charity partners is key for the success.
