Food For Good

We believe that true happiness is giving and that is why we support efforts to fight hunger. With every meal served through YeatUp we aspire to make food available to those who can’t afford it. By hosting or attending events, you can help us make a difference in someone else’s life. We can’t change the world but we can change someone’s world!

Our partner for fighting hunger:

TIDER – Basic Needs Association is a non-profit association focusing on activities for ensuring self-sustainability of people. Establishment objective of the association is eradication of poverty through increasing the number of self-sustainable people. To reach this objective, TIDER firstly aims providing basic needs of people through non-profit food banks it establishes. In order to ensure economic sustainability of beneficiaries, after meeting their basic needs, they also benefit from employment activities through Support HR programme.
