Robin Food-Food Rescue in the North

Our association was established in 2017 to prevent food wastage. When the war broke out, we pivoted our activities to provide assistance with food for soldiers and evacuees. We rescue vegetables and fruits that would otherwise be wasted, transforming them into nutritious and comforting meals! With the help of chefs and a community of volunteers, we have already prepared over 10,000 dishes.

Now, we need help to cover the costs of our activities, including food products, kitchen expenses, professional personnel, and logistics.

My business - My spark

Our business, the Robin Food association, was founded in 2017 with a mission to address the global issue of food waste. More than a third of the world’s food goes uneaten, impacting the environment, society, and the economy. We believe everyone can play a role in preventing food waste in a fun and tasty way.

Our focus is on both educational and culinary activities aimed at raising awareness about this issue. Through workshops and various activities, we strive to educate and engage people in the fight against food waste
