The Mauritian Food Sharing Project

Reducing waste while helping those in need

Food Sharing at Zero Cost

MANZER PARTAZER is the first food sharing project of Mauritius. We ‘save’ high quality food which would otherwise go to waste, such as buffet leftovers in hotels or restaurants, and supermarket food that is close to expiry, and we donate it to people in need through a very simple and no-cost food sharing system.

The project is based on a direct food sharing approach which builds its strength on making the most of existing resources, thereby creating a win-win situation for both donors and recipients whilst keeping in mind key food safety requirements.

First in Mauritius

No additional logistics costs

Simple and effective system

The beauty of this system, compared to the classic food banks which are in existence in many developing and developed countries, is that no additional packaging, storage and transport costs are required for both food donors and food receivers.

In fact, the food is collected for free and distributed by the donors’ staff using existing transport daily routes at no extra cost. It is received in very short time with no storage costs and finally shared by our focal points/volunteers free of charge within their own communities centres, schools and orphanages
