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 »

Our free buffet is back!

We can now welcome a (limited) number of guests to join our free buffet. 

After months of serving take away dinners, we can finally bring back the social interactions on which GZG was founded.

Our free buffet is open every Wednesday between 19.00 and 20.00 at our central location in Rotterdam.

Reservations are required and can be made every Monday morning via this link.
