Welcome to SHARE IT

SHARE IT is a free toolkit which will help your initiative estimate, communicate and improve its sustainability impacts. Whether your venture grows food together, eats food together or re-distributes waste and excess food, it is having an important impact by tackling particular environmental, economic, political and social issues. SHARE IT will support you to communicate these impacts by generating a tailored sustainability impact report for your initiative.

SHARE IT has three innovative features:

  • The Toolshed: to measure your social, economic and environmental impacts
  • The Talent Garden: to share stories about your impacts with key stakeholders
  • The Greenhouse: to connect with other food sharing initiatives and share resources and knowledge

We are passionate about raising awareness about the positive environmental, social and economic impacts food sharing is having. To achieve this we offer a free online sustainability impact assessment toolkit to measure and communicate your impacts to stakeholders, policy makers and funding groups!

If you'd like to start your SHARE IT journey, follow the first steps in this video or read our getting started blog post here
