Hungry Locals fed by Generous Neighbours

February 7, 2013


I think this is such a lovely and simple idea. Created by UK based social innovation startup FutureGov, the site is based on the premise that those with families or housemates who cook together might sometimes find they have cooked too much. Instead of throwing away the extra food, members of Casserole can post any meals they have leftover onto the site’s ‘menu’, detailing what it is, when and where it was cooked and how many servings are available. Others who don’t have the time, abilities or inclination to cook can then take advantage of freshly cooked food near to them. Cooks can list their leftovers as a one-off occasion, or sign up to Casserole’s Pair Up project, whereby they agree to share meals with a neighbor on a regular basis. According to the organizers, all of those currently receiving cooked food through the Pair Up scheme are over the age of 80. Originally published by Springwise.
