Do you want to be part of the solution and spend a weekend with us to come up together with actionable solutions to #reducefoodwaste in your country? In all 5 STREFOWA countries we dedicate one weekend to hack food waste, meaning we try to come up with ideas for apps or websites that help distribute food surplus to people, who want to use it, or apps, that help households waste less or shop and store wiser.  Find out about our Food Waste Hackathons and stay up to date by signing up for our newsletter here.
