Small shops around Utrecht provide us with fruits, vegetables and bread which cannot be sold, and would otherwise be thrown away.
1We do regular pickups at small greengrocers we have an agreement with and give this to a shelter for undocumented people and the Free Shop.
2 We collect food that would have otherwise gone to waste, and together with anyone who wants to join we cook donation based delicious meals every Saturday in ACU
3 We have free food markets, and cook at different events and demonstrations with a sustainable, activist, DIY culture
