Food Forward is excited to partner with ExtraShare to bring this simple but useful tool to Toronto's neighbourhoods. ExtraShare is a new website that helps communities connect through food.
- Items such as garden vegetables, space and knowledge can be shared or even traded
- All personal information is kept hidden, so meetings/transactions only take place if the sharer feels comfortable
Paolo Granelli, the founder of ExtraShare, got the idea last year when he grew too many zucchini in his garden. He still had leftovers after sharing with friends and family, and wondered why there were no websites offering to help.
The site is currently in 'BETA', meaning that new features are being implemented based on user feedback, and the site may go down from time to time while changes are being made. The ExtraShare software development team is currently working on beautifying the site and implementing a login and 'share' feed system, enabling users to create private sharing circles and easily broadcast availability to their friends.
Help Food Forward spread the word by passing this blog to your networks and community groups. Read more about the initative.
