Amazing social place

Lovely place with very good, healthy food and a cosy atmosphere. Guests come from all sorts of backgrounds and ages. Nice conversations, music and singing. Lovely!
The buffet is free but donating shelf-stable foods is much appreciated, such as coconut milk, olive oil and dried herbs, from their “grocery list” on the website.

Free vegan no food waste dinners

Groenten Zonder Grenzen is a lovely place to enjoy a no food waste dinner made fully from saved fruits and vegetables as well as donations of plant-based goods (local vegetables from GroenGoed, Das Brot bread...).
The dinner takes place every Wednesday from 19.00 and is free and open to all without reservation (check on the website for latest news). Such a nice place to meet people from all kinds of different backgrounds and have nice talks around delicious vegan food.
Highly recommend

Pros: Everything vegan, No food waste, Very inclusive and free dinner

Love this place

Went here and loved it. You have to make reservations because a lot of people are coming back regularly. The food is delicious, there is no menu because the ingredients differ every time.

Pros: Lovely people helping to realise this, Delicious food, which was all vegan when we were

Good food and nice atmosphere

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 :)

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
