ONE OF THE GREATEST SOCIAL MOVEMENTS OF OUR TIME

In Germany daily many tons of food are destroyed, even though they are still consumable. At the same time, there are millions of people who do not have enough food. The panels create a bridge between abundance and deficiency: they collect quality food which would otherwise land in the garbage, and distribute it to socially and economically disadvantaged – free of charge or to a symbolic amount. Currently there are more than 900 panels in Germany. All are non-profit organizations. Nationwide, they regularly support over 1.5 million needy people with food – just under a third of them children and adolescents or seniors.
