Less waste, the better it tastes!
Groenten Zonder Grenzen (GZG - 'Veggies without borders' ) is an initiative that collects leftover food to cook free, healthy and sustainable meals. Learn more »

GZG will hit the streets!

During this lockdown we have decided to deliver free healthy meals to people who are having an extra hard time outside. If you want more info or can contribute to this initiative, please send us a message.

We are especially looking for ingredients that we cannot collect through our residual flows (such as coconut milk, pasta, beans, etc).

We will email all our guests when we can eat inside again.

Greetings from Team GZG

Give us a hand

Since we can only save fruits and vegetables from the market we always need a few more ingredients to make our meals come to life.
