Every year, more than 90,000 people in Brussels who are unable to feed themselves call for food aid. At the same time, associations are struggling to source unsold food and redistribute it. Yet, a considerable volume of food is wasted. This is where Réseau Loco comes in, a group of logistics offices that work at the local level to supply food aid services.
Aware of the necessity of food donations but also of the logistical constraints they generate, the supporters of Collaborative Logistics have got their hands dirty. Their action can be broken down into three stages. First of all, to take stock of the food needs in the area and then to combine expertise and logistical resources. Finally, Réseau Loco takes care of collecting, transporting and distributing unsold goods. The non-profit organisation ensures that its unsold goods are diverse, of high quality and in sufficient quantity to meet the needs of organisations.
This concerted effort requires the involvement of both associations and the public sector, namely the municipality and the Public Centre for Social Action (CPAS). Companies, foundations and individual donors also participate in the work of Réseau Loco for better access to food. And it's not in vain since nearly 3,000,000 meals were served in 2022! This success was confirmed by being a finalist at the Food Waste Awards in the "Changemakers" category the same year.
If you, too, are convinced that eating your fill is a right, join Réseau Loco without delay!

A taste of the team
Réseau Loco is now made up of 8 logistics branches spread throughout the Brussels-Capital Region. Determined to act for access to food for all, actors such as the Red Cross and the municipality of Schaerbeek have joined the network.
To address food issues, 3 new employees are expected to join the Loco Network team in early 2023. As the first constituents of the association, they should be the pillars of a rapidly expanding group.
If you too want to take action against food waste, join the Loco Network dream team!
