We are all too often showered with vague statistics and figures regarding food waste, and the huge numbers make the problem seem distant and abstract, which is why we aim at keeping it local, but global. On the long-term we want to bring consciousness about food waste to ever more people in different parts of the world and revolutionise the food system, one neighbourhood at a time. Despite the distinctively local character of TBYW’s operations, the concept is very transferable to many local communities.
We are a form of social franchise. Our satellite groups, are independently owned and operated, but enjoy support from the network. They receive access to information, designs contacts and other resources for free in return for spreading the shared mission to another community.
