Expiry Date

Chiara Bertolin . Daniele Condello . Giulia Orlando

This service allows you to use food approaching its “use-by” expiry date by combining it with the nearly-expired food of other people. Together you cook and eat the food as an informal dinner!
Food is saved which would otherwise be wasted, and friendships are made during an enjoyable evening.
