About Taste Before You Waste
Taste Before You Waste is a foundation, based in Amsterdam, with the mission to reduce consumer food waste by providing citizens with the inspiration, knowledge and opportunity for responsible and waste-free consumption. We create a welcoming international community of foodies by hosting donation-based events such as foodcycle markets, wasteless dinners, educational workshops, event caterings and presentations, showcasing that the food that is currently regarded as waste is actually delicious and valuable. By raising awareness and empowering citizens, Taste Before You Waste contributes to a social movement that pushes for a fairer and more sustainable food system.
