  • "Closed-up food": Unlike donating meals to those in need, Closed-up food refers to restaurants selling their leftover food at a discounted price to entice customers to purchase. People can find out which stores sell Closed-up food through a system. By consuming Closed-up food, customers can buy meals at a reduced price, while restaurants can reduce food waste and losses, creating a win-win situation. ​​

  • Food Banks: The food bank collaborates with restaurants that sell meals to provide food that can be 'cooked again' and 'cleanly sorted' to a central kitchen to create a self-service style of meal pickup. However, due to the outbreak of the pandemic, to consider food hygiene and health, the food is now packaged in boxes for people to pick up freely.

  • International examples: In Switzerland, the annual per capita food waste amounts to 90 kilograms, and surplus food has become a headache for both society and the government.

  • The Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2 Zero Hunger aims to eliminate hunger as an international issue.

  • In the year 2000, leaders from 189 countries gathered together and announced the 'Millennium Development Goals', aiming to achieve 8 goals through 15 years of effort. With time, the world has encountered different challenges, and some unfulfilled aspects of the Millennium Development Goals have been continued under the '2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: Transforming Our World'.
