Hunger and poverty in Switzerland


Hunger and poverty are also an existing problem in Europe and even in Switzerland. In Switzerland alone, more than 650,000 people are affected and together more than 1,000,000 are at risk. Nevertheless, around 2.6 million tons of food losses are incurred here every year!


In order to counteract food waste and hunger, all donations in this area are directed to the "Schweizer Tafel", which distributes intact surplus food to homeless shelters, alley kitchens and emergency shelters.
