Decreasing food waste is an important issue for modern people.
The Chiayi City Government helped the Jingzhong community launch the Food-Appreciation Fridge Project
together with the Alliance of Taiwan Foodbanks to systematically share food.
The food comes from many places.
It comes from the Alliance, hypermarket chains, is donated by people, and leftover festival food too.
Therefore, the supplies are quite abundant.
Besides, the Alliance also set up a food storage facility for non near-expired items.
Anyone can receive food here,
so families or individuals with financial problems can overcome difficulties for a short time.
It shows the spirit of love, sharing, and caring for each other.
It also contributes to environmental sustainability.
The Chiayi City Government and non-governmental organizations
promote the Food-Appreciation Fridge Project together.
There are three main goals––“Sharing,” “Appreciation for food” and “Caring for the underprivileged.”
Now, there are service points for the Food-Appreciation Fridge in many places.
There is hope that the project will grow bigger in the future,
and that communities will become relay stations for the Food-Appreciation Fridge,
so as to help more people.
