The yunity heartbeat - news from the world of sharing, fresh every two weeks.
Foodsharing Taiwan won the g0v grant and will use the money that they'll receive partially to support foodsaving.world development!
It is the 2017 Autumn g0v Civic Tech Prototype Grant specifically, which will support the necessary steps for foodsharing Taiwan to really start using the foodsaving tool. Thanks to Stefan, who wrote a long and detailed application, where he explained the need for foodsaving and the advantages of having a platform to do so, foodsharing Taiwan will now receive 500.000 TWD. After taxes (which will be huge since Stefan is a foreigner) the money will be used to finance local things for Taiwan first of course, like printing flyers and paying travel costs for meetings and presentations. What's left afterwards will be distributed between active contributors to the foodsaving tool using a time tracking system.
