FOOD SHARING INITIATIVE
Any group that grows food together, cooks/eats food together and/or redistributes surplus food
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 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!
SHARE IT is free for you to use yourself and designed to be accessible for a non-expert. But we understrand many groups might have low time availability or feel unsure how to navigate the SHARE IT platform. So we are also developing a suite of support services where our research team can conduct the sustainability impact assessment for you! These will be costed at accessible rates, based on your means.
