Taste Before You Waste
Taste Before You Waste is a foundation with the mission to combat food waste at consumer level by providing people with inspiration, knowledge and opportunities to consume responsibly and without waste. We welcome foodies by organizing events such as a food market, wasteless dinners, educational workshops, catering and presentations, in which we show that food that would otherwise be thrown away is in fact tasty and valuable. All events are open to everyone and based on donation. By creating awareness and encouraging people, Taste Before You Waste contributes to a social movement that fights for a fairer and more sustainable food system. Our mission during the corona times has been to collect and transport surplus food from our suppliers on the Javastraat to refugee places and centers in Amsterdam with our cargo bike. The crisis has put us in a dire financial position and in order to survive we need subsidies and sponsors. We are looking for someone who can help us raise funds and apply for grants.
MAEX helps organizations that want to make an impact to find and collaborate with appropriate social initiatives. If initiatives cooperate in an equal and reciprocal way with these organizations, then together we generate much more social impact and we work together for broad prosperity!
