Swiss households are responsible for around half of the food waste. People buy too much food and are afraid of food which has passed it’s expiration date, but a lot of this food is still edible.

An app that brings back the lost knowledge of our grandmothers. It teaches you how to make soup out of almost anything and connects people to collaborate on a delicious bowl of soup! It also teaches you about seasonal food products and the basics on how to prepare it.

  • Why do you think your project is relevant for the City of Zurich?

For a lot of Zurich's Citizens the problem of food waste is in the back of their head when they throw away food. Yet many of them don't have the knowdlege or a creative approach to counter that. We give them a tool to educate themselves about reusing food they would otherwise throw away and what food is seasonal and available in the region.

How can citizens and households of Zurich be encouraged to buy and eat more climate-friendly food (less CO2 emissions) and to reduce food-waste?

Solutions should focus on the following:

  • Making use of existing product information about food so citizens can reduce carbon footprint when shopping
  • Avoiding food-waste in the households due to easy to use solutions
