STREFOWA Food Waste Hackathons

NEW - Food Hack Manual

In 5 countries, we dedicated one weekend to  come up with ideas for apps or websites.

Concepts ranged from food sharing to apps helping to waste less, shop wiser and store food better. Based on our experience we distilled a manual so that anyone can organize a hackathon in their city.
