YOURLOCAL NEIGHBOR

In Denmark, more than 247,000 tonnes of food are thrown out by Danish households each year. Part of this waste can now be saved using the YourLocal app, which with a new initiative called YourLocal Neighbor makes it possible to pass on excess food to your neighbors.

This is how YourLocal Neighbor works

When you have something left, then give it to your neighbor

YourLocal Neighbor works in the same way as we already know the YourLocal app, where it is possible to pick up excess food from the local bakery or supermarket. As a user of the app, you take a picture of the unopened, durable food that you no longer need, and then people nearby have the opportunity to come and pick up the excess food so that it does not end up in the trash.

The future is about working together

At YourLocal, we believe the fight against food waste is about working together

That is why we have decided to make a strategic collaboration with Denmarks biggest food waste NGO - Stop Spild Lokalt

Stop Spild Lokalt and YourLocal will together make sure to save both large and small batches of surplus food in the retail trade. In addition, YourLocal, in collaboration with Stop Spild Lokalt and their 800 volunteers, will investigate some of the most common causes of food waste and together develop the best food waste initiatives of the future. Together we can make a big difference!
