Problem We Are Trying to Solve
Schweizer Tafel's work makes an important contribution toward the alleviation of poverty in Switzerland. Every day, the charity collects around 16 tons of surplus groceries in perfect condition from retailers and distributes the items to around 450 charitable institutions to benefit people in need. According to the Swiss Federal Statistical Office, there are around 650,000 people living at or below subsistence level in Switzerland. That is 7.5 percent, and unfortunately, this figure is trending upwards. One of the aims of the UN 2030 Agenda is to eradicate poverty worldwide. And we here in Switzerland are not exempt from this challenge.
How We Are Going To Do It
