Donating Unopened Packaged Food in Zürich

Hi,

Is there any place I can give away some un-opened, packaged food (e.g. noodles, spaghetti,...) for use by whomever actually uses them? We gathered in our kitchen cleaning and will not use them.
It's even better if the place is close to Zürich HB or the Unterland.
Thanks

Personally I'd just put it up in a local FB group.

Also, a quick search of Lebensmittel+spenden+Zürich comes up with the following:

Re: Donating Unopened Packaged Food in Zürich

Check the links given but I am not sure if you can use them as a private person for a one-off.

What won't help you now but after christmas there is "zweimal Weihnachten" where you can bring a parcel to the Post with food items. There are some rules re expiary date. https://www.2xweihnachten.ch/de/

Please let us know if you were sucessful. Might be useful for others as well.
