Save food, change the world!

Bruised Food Club – BFC

A non-profit organisation based in Uppsala, Sweden

BFC’s mission

Born out of a student project back in 2018, BFC is a volunteer-run organization with a big heart and a big vision: contributing to a world with minimum food waste and food insecurity.  It does not sit right with us that these two things, food waste and food insecurity, coexist in our modern times. So, we decided to do something about it, and this is our approach:

  • We raise awareness about food waste and sustainable production and consumption of food through our educational events, our food waste blog and our partnerships. 
  • We help stakeholders in the supply chain to reduce their food waste in line with the SDG’s 2030. 
  • We reintroduce edible food to the chain of consumption and make it accessible to people who are socioeconomically vulnerable.

Every week, we collect good, edible food that would otherwise be thrown away and offer it on a donation-based market. By our actions, we both involve consumers and the private sector alike to create societal change, not only by preventing food waste, but also by raising awareness on the problem 

Our partners are, for example, supermarkets and social services organisations that find themselves with food at the end of the day which would usually go to waste.

We are supported by Studieförbundet Bilda.
