  • Description


    *️️*️️ Priority will be given to volunteers coming for 2+ months :) ... but if you can only stay a shorter while, we can usually arrange something *️️*️️

    We are Israel's first social restaurant - located in the market of Haifa :)

    We are a project dedicated to creating a unique and accessible platform for engaging the public in sustainability, community and social action, by promoting local activities to combat the global food waste crisis.
    We do this through two main principles:

    1. “Rescue” of food that would otherwise go to waste - from farms, shops and markets.
    2. Together with our chef and many volunteers, preparation of meals for the public on a pay-as-you-feel (PAYF) basis. People can choose to pay for their meal and related activities of the project, according to their desire and ability. Payment can be in money or time.

    Through food, something that everyone needs and enjoys, we open up a range of subjects to engage in. Those who are less fortunate can have access to a great meal. Those who are part of the general consumer society can get a direct “taste” of the global food waste crisis and contribute to the project, with their money/time/skills. We plan to campaign to raise awareness, and organize relevant action around food waste in Israel.

    We now have opened Israel's first food-rescue restaurant, in the Talpiot market in Haifa!
