Can anyone tell me whether or not the notion of food banks exists in Switzerland? Where I used to live, most supermarkets have a bin/cage where people can "donate" non-perishable, non-expired food items (usually canned, dried or packet "just-add-water" foods) that they either bought too much of, don't want, or perhaps in the case of a family, the kids did not like. These donated foods go to shelters charity organisations to feed the poor and/or homeless.
Thanks in advance for any tips
ps. many supermarkets also had a bin for pet food to be donated to the local animal shelters
Sad to not see that here... or at least not be made obvious.
