Problem We Are Trying to Solve

For 20 years, the Foundation "Schweizer Tafel" has been distributing free groceries to more than 500 social institutions such as shelters for the homeless, street kitchens, emergency shelters and aid organizations in German and French-speaking Switzerland. The supply chain encompasses mainly from Swiss wholesalers, producers or even retailers who donate their surplus goods to the Schweizer Tafel. Around 16 tons of food come together every day in 12 regions in Switzerland.

The foundation receives surplus food product from retailers that are close to their use-by date. About 90% of these short-dated products consist of fresh produce, such as fruit and vegetables.

The situation has worsened dramatically and therefore extraordinary measures are necessary and a completely new situation for Schweizer Tafel.

To diversify its offer and to be able to deliver a complete range of foodstuffs to the most deprived people, the foundation needs to complete its basket with long-life products such as pasta, rice, oil or canned food (mainly vegetables).

  • With CHF   25.00 – you help buying 55 packs* of pasta
  • With CHF   50.00 – you help buying 20 liters* of oil
  • With CHF 100.00 – you help buying 85 cans* of food
  • With CHF 200.00  – you help buying 210 packets* of rice

* Approximate prices subject to market fluctuations

Thanks to your donation, the foundation will be able to buy these useful products from its partners in large quantities and redistribute them to those who need them most.

 


How We Are Going To Do It

Team WM COO & BRM will encourage colleagues to donate during the summer event.


Who Benefits

More than 700,000 people in Switzerland live in difficult circumstances. With the pandemic, even more fell below the poverty line, mainly due to short-time working and job loss.

WORKING POORS - Anyone who works and still does not make it over the poverty line with the income they generate is known as a working poor.

SINGLE PARENTS - There are many single parents who can barely get by, more than 300,000 people across Switzerland are at risk of poverty.

POVERTY - Whether homeless, asylum seekers, victims of violence, people with addiction problems or depression, there are unfortunately many ways that lead to poverty.


Long Term Impact

The decisive factor was and is the situation-related necessity of supplying our social institutions such as shelters for the homeless, street kitchens, emergency shelters and delivery points. Especially, now in these challenging times, it is important for people affected by poverty to be able to obtain food - also in Switzerland.

Since the outbreak of the crisis COVID and people coming from Ukraine, the Schweizer Tafel has been driving more complex tours, which has led to additional kilometers and additional planning effort. The focus is no longer on the efficiency of the tours, but on meeting the needs of our customers. We want to relieve these additional costs with the crowdfunding campaigns on Copalana. The task of helping people in need must be able to continue at any time and we do not know how long the crisis will last.


What We Need To Do

The aim is for all participants to fundraise for Schweizer Tafel before and during the COO & BRM Summer Event.
