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 is on obligatory holiday..

A week after our first public meal in 485 days (!) covid-19 has forced us to postpone our dinners again.

Now it is mostly our young volunteers who have the greatest risk, as most are still waiting for their first vaccination and have a higher chance of being left with long-term symptoms.

Our goal is to start again on Wednesday, 11th of August.

We hope to see you then!
