Foodsharing and Oona Morrow discussed the idea of common food pools at Thuis on the 12th of March. With an intimate group, we shared perspectives on foodsharing, urban food culture and how food security can be maintained in shared fridges.

Oona Morrow talked about how our food system is actually based upon common-pool thinking. For example food security and food provision are regulated on a national basis. Only the final food provision is market-regulated.

Foodsharing Wageningen made us aware of food waste and how to perserve foods the best using a fun quiz. It was also really nice that they illustrated a practical example of food sharing, where Oona gave an academic perspective.
