ReFood: The Food Sharing Network

Wednesday, 14 March 2018

Tags:

Do you know a food business or a not-for-profit organisation in the City of Swan?

Although some large supermarket chains have arrangements with food rescue organisations, many smaller shops and cafes throw out perfectly good food every day. This excess food does not go to people who need it, and adds to waste going to landfill.

ECU’s ReFood team in conjunction with Community2Go have developed an electronic food sharing platform that operates through a mobile application.  Food that is safe to consume, but not able to be sold, can be uploaded to the mobile application by food businesses. This food can then be claimed, collected and used by community organisations.

ECU PhD student Eleonora Stojanoska, supervisor Dr Therese O’Sullivan and the ECU ReFood team are launching a six-week project in the City of Swan to pilot the ReFood concept.

Food businesses and community groups can register their interest for the pilot by contacting Eleonora via email: Estojano@our.ecu.edu.au
