Ghent against food waste
The City of Ghent takes initiatives to combat food wastage. For instance, in a lot of restaurants, you can ask to take your leftovers home in a practical box called “restorestje” without feeling embarrassed. The boxes are made of FSC-certified cardboard and are compostable.
You can recognise the restaurants in Ghent that participate in this initiative by the sticker on the door. You can also take your own box to put the leftovers in. Thanks to this initiative, you can repeat your culinary experience in Ghent!
