Less food waste, more joy!
Groenten zonder grenzen (GZG - 'Veggies without borders' ) is an initiative that collects leftover food to organise free, healthy and accessible dinner parties. Learn more »

From cooking vegetables… to delivering them!

Due to the increasing threat of the Corona virus we have sadly postponed our weekly dinners.

Instead, we are now helping those who are most effected by the new anti-Corona measures by delivering leftover fruit, vegetables, and bread – free of charge.

If you wish to help us please send a message to [email protected].

For more info you can follow our Facebook / Instagram.
