Fooodwaste happens everywhere and in every part of the food cycle even if nobody wants it to happen.
We created a local solution to reduce the waste. This solution is situated in Belgium (Kotrijk) where an exchange system (for services) already exists and it is called letsleie http://www.letsleie.be. We did choose letstlei because their exchange system doesn’t work with money but with a fictive money system "vlasbloemen". In their system we want to integrate the exchange of food leftovers. After some years the system could become world wide.
Our solution begins with an event in a neighbourhood or apartments. This event brings the neighbours together who don't know each anymore. It explains the existing system and the problems of the food waste. Every person had to take a leftover and chefs will create a delicious meal of it. The members will receive a food box who is biodegradable and contains a QR code that will simplify the food/ service exchange.
People will talk to each other after the event and more and more people will join without needing new publicity.<!--EndFragment-->
