Donating Food in Zurich?

Hi EF

We are moving back to the USA and have quite a bit of food in our cupboards. Most of it is rice, pasta, soup mix, cake mixes, spices, crackers, canned goods, etc.

Does anyone know a charity in Zurich that accepts food donations? It would be a shame to throw all of it away!

Thanks,
shiny

Re: Donating Food in Zurich?

The Salvation army are always willing to take food in any form. Many communes have a social kitchen where the elderly, poorer families and those who have been socially outcast can go for a 3 course lunch for 5fr. I'm sure they would be glad to take your supplies.

Re: Donating Food in Zurich?

Hi everyone.

Doing a quick search, I couldn't find more information about Food Donations in Zurich? Does anyone know if there are places that accept food donations?

Thank you!
