Glovo already donates all of its food waste in Barcelona

Spain.- Glovo has joined the iniative “BCN Comparteix”, run by Nutrition Without Borders, to fight against food waste and help the less fortunate members of Barcelona’s community. With this collaboration agreement, at Glovo we commit to donating excess food from our supermarkets and Cook Rooms to the NGO, which will deliver it to the 21 organisations it works with.

After very strict safety checks on Glovo’s excess food, Nutrition Without Borders will be in charge of delivering the food to different places within the city, mainly community kitchens. We estimate that we donate excess food from our Cook Rooms every two or three weeks, and from our Supermarkets every month.

This initiative is another thing that will allow us to achieve our goal of being carbon neutral in 2021, as food waste is one of the main causes of Glovo’s carbon emissions.
