What’s the story?

The vision of RESTLOS GLÜCKLICH e.V. is that food surplus is more valued again. Our mission is to create awareness on food waste. With our projects we like people to consume more consciously. We offer for example cooking classes and educational projects. Until October 2017 we also have been running a small restaurant in Berlin-Neukölln. At the moment we are holding a creative winter break with our restaurant which means that the restaurant is currently not open.

But our projects involve more than a restaurant. We are organizing a lot of activities against food waste which will be going on and we will be focusing more on educational projects in future times.

What does food surplus exactly mean?

Food surplus does not automatically mean that this food is already spoiled or that the “best before” date has passed. It is truly an unfortunate fact that tons of food is thrown away every year. A lot of this food is fine to eat. It is often discarded, because it simply takes away storage space, the shape is not right, the packaging is damaged or it doesn’t look picture-perfect. Most of the food we are cooking with we get as a donation from organic supermarkets and grocery stores. The products they can no longer sell are often vegetables, fruit and bread. This surplus food we use to create innovative meals in our workshops and teach people about the value of food.

Our projects and workshops

RESTLOS GLÜCKLICH e.V. is a non-profit association. Our team works mainly voluntarily. We organize educational projects, cooking classes and workshops on topics relating to food and how each of us can reduce food waste at home. We offer workshops for kids and adults as well. If you are interested in our educational projects for a group or your school please contact us: bildung@restlos-gluecklich.berlin

Information on workshops or dinner events for individuals will be announced under events or on facebook.
