The idea of a food bank is not new in the world, however, we were the first in our country to be able to implement the principles of foreign initiatives and help those in need by minimizing organic waste.
According to the State Statistics Service, 51% of the population of Ukraine lives below the poverty line (as of the first half of 2020). At the same time, FAO reports that Ukrainians annually produce about 7 million tons of organic waste. We strive to create a culture of food banks in our country, which will allow to minimize both numbers at the same time. Ukraine of our dreams is a country where there is no hunger and waste.
A team is forming around the idea of "Tarilka".
