The Free Store Project






  • The Free Store Project explores the viability of creating sustainable long-term food redistribution networks. Moving well beyond traditional models of corporate responsibility and charitable ‘gift giving’. The Free Store project investigates how ‘unlikely’ relationships between the commercial and creative/social sector can produce projects that create sustained and productive innovation that benefits all parties. The Free Store workshop for ISEA2012 will reflect on the New Zealand Free Store projects, throwing some radical economics into the mix the workshop will investigate grass roots ways communities can address the growing disparity between the commercial imperatives that drive food waste and the dilemma of food security.
