What is this commitment about?
Food, especially fruits and vegetables, always has an expiration date. It is way too common that we have to throw away our groceries or meals. In order to stop this, there are food distributors. Here you can drop off your remaining food that you don't need and make it available for other people. Someone else can make good use of the food that you would probably throw away.
What are 5-Minute Commitments?
With our 5-Minute Commitments, we want to inspire you to easily integrate volunteering into your everyday life. They are independent of non-profit organizations and allow you to individually get involved for people and nature in your neighborhood.
With this commitment offer you can give joy to others with food that you cannot use up! All you have to do is sort out the food and bring it to a food distributor near you. Food distributors can be of all different types, such as a refrigerator or any other storage facility. On the page of Foodsharing you can find a list of food distributors in Germany.
This 5-minute commitment does not require any special prerequisites.
Depending on how far away the nearest foodsharing distributor is from you, this can vary. If you combine it with a nice walk or a short bike ride, however, the time required is very low.
Be sure that the food you share, is still useable and not already moldy.
This project is location independent.
We are a social enterprise from Berlin with a big dream: We want a world in which everyone contributes to a better and more sustainable future according to their possibilities and regardless of time budget, language or previous knowledge. For this purpose, we gather on vostel.de numerous engagement offers from non-profit organizations that are looking for volunteers. By doing this, we show concrete possibilities for action in order to become socially active and would like to motivate above all the younger generations to get involved for a better world.More about the organisation
