To make a statement, SFYN dumped 200 tons of potatoes on the NDSM wharf on the 6th of June. We got a lot of attention and for the whole day people queued up to pick up the potatoes with the result that we saved them all! This Saturday we plan to do it again! And, it will not only be at NDSM again but also on more than 15 other locations across the Netherlands!
Our Dutch potato farmers have had a hard time being unable to sell their potatoes for events and to hospitality. Therefore there was a risk that most of them would end up as biogas or animal feed. This is not only result in the waste of perfectly edible food, but also in much lower price for the farmer. But now, by buying them in advance from TooGoodToGo, we are able to help the farmer with a fair price.
This Saturday, 27th of June @ NDSM Amsterdam.
Buy your bag of potatoes in advance through the TooGoodToGo app and register to pick them up at a specific time slot.
Do you want to help out? We could use some help between 10.00 untill 19.00. You can register yourself as volunteer here.
