What is Madbroen?

Madbroen is a project run by volunteers and it aims to reduce food waste and help people in need. We collect surplus food from bakeries and supermarkets to redistribute it to shelters in Copenhagen. We collaborate with Kirkens Korsær who take the surplus food from us and give it out to the homeless. In the future we would like to help more shelters and other people in need all over the city and therefore we are looking for more people to join Madbroen.

Become a volunteer!

Help us to save food and at the same time help people in need. By volunteering with us you have the chance to help people in need, get an insight into food waste and the situation in Denmark, get some exercise and a pick of the surplus food for yourself.


You can sign up for our shifts on Karrot, our volunteer managment system.


We dont currently have registrations just enter your name and number and we'll contact you with the details.

Do you have food surplus?

If you are in the food industry, run a supermarket, kitchen or other business which has a surplus of food and you'd like to give it away to people in need then just contact us! We are always looking for new partners to collaborate with. We will do all the hard work all you have to do is provide us with food. Our volunteers will pick it up from you and take care of everything.
