About Food Sharing

Food sharing is an ancient collaborative practice that has sustained societies for millennia

Food sharing is the bedrock of human civilisation. It includes collaborative action around food that provides sustenance, reduces waste and cements social ties. We are all familiar with the benefits of sharing a meal with our immediate friends and family. There are also thousands of initiatives around the globe that facilitate food sharing in a whole variety of ways across the food system from seed sharing and community growing, through community kitchens and social dining, to surplus food redistribution and community composting.
