FoodSharing allows reducing food waste by redirecting food surplus towards those who are in an obvious condition of economical disadvantage.The idea is the creation of a virtuous circuit where agents interact in order to achieve solidaristic purposes
The economic crisis has an extremely rough impact on middle/low classes, which have been obliged to reduce even the consumption of basic foods. The virtuous circuit introduce this advantages: 1)productive surpluses and unsold quantities of goods belonging to the food market can be redirected towards people in need instead of being thrown away and/or destroyed. Companies involved in production and distribution will be able to reunite the economical aspect with the solidaristic one. 2)charity associations will have the possibility to achieve a social purpose thanks to such effects coming from the creation of a web that allows knowing the amount of surpluse and that of demand 3)the useful placing of productive surplus, that already admits less waste, also favours environmental safekeeping
Foodsharing creating an online web for tenderers(producers,restaurateurs..),charity organizations and people in need.
Target group and social impact
FoodSharing creates a virtuous circuit allowing agents - individuals, organizations, tenderers - to interact between them, creating economical advantages ad opportunities and synergies destined to create positive effects on a higher scale. The exchanges between different agents would produce evident advantages to the associates, as in who disposes of surpluses can usefully redirect them towards people that need them most. Therefore, it would be a form of income increase, that aside from the economical aspect, also reveals an extended form of solidarity that with no doubt operates for a wider cohesion and social acceptance. The virtuous process, once settled, will extend its benefits on the environment as well. Useful placement of surpluses reduces waste, therefore garbage.
