Yhteinen pöytä (Shared table -initiative)
Yhteinen pöytä -model is founded, funded and owned by the City of Vantaa and Vantaa Parish Union. It is a centralised and efficient way of logisticating surplus food from food factories, wholesalers and retailers to a large network of food aid distributors (congregations, NGOs and citizen centres in the Vantaa area). This network organises community lunches. Yhteinen pöytä is ecologically and socially sustainable: it creates community and welfare based food.
