Kipstraat 37, Rotterdam, Netherlands, 3011 RS

Organizes a weekly free buffet/meal which is often vegan, sometimes vegetarian (served separately). Food is from products that markets would have thrown away, in an attempt to reduce food waste. Helping out in the kitchen, bringing your own leftovers from work, or helping with some of the dishes after is a welcomed but not obligatory. Best to reserve via the forms on its website.

First Review by MyrthyC

Good food and nice atmosphere - Edit

Disclaimer: biased review since I've helped to set up this project.

With a group of fantastic volunteers all passionate for healthy sustainable eating we're running an initiative against food waste. We collect food from (super)markets on Tuesdays, and cook a creative full buffet on Wednesdays. We have space for approximately 45 guests, and the atmosphere is casual and welcoming to all. Our meals are free of charge and aimed at bringing people together and introducing them to the delicacy that are vegan dishes.

We are looking forward to meeting all of you at one of our weekly dinner parties. You can reserve a spot via the website.

Since we depend on voluntary working hours and donated ingredients, there's also a possibility to help us collect food, cook or wash after if you want to give something back to our planet. If you are interested in helping out (thank you!!), even if just for one evening, you can sign up via our website :)

A happy place to be a cow :) - Edit

I've followed this initiative from the start and have been really impressed how it has developed and grown without any financial assistance.

The creative and dedicated atmosphere in the open kitchen goes some way to explain this and you can quickly tell that the chefs helping out enjoy making good food and believe in the vegan cause.

Coming to GZG is a rewarding experience on many different levels and I highly recommend anyone in the neighbourhood to stop by!

Pros: Unique concept to tackle and expose food waste, Delicious food without spending a penny, Young and friendly group of volunteers

Cons: Ambience lighting could be improved, Had to ring the doorbell to get in
