We gladly welcome everyone who wants to participate. Only together can we work toward food sovereignty in our neighborhoods!
THERE IS A LOT TO DO!
LebensMittelPunkte require hands-on action. Most of this work is on the ground in our neighborhoods: the distribution of vegetable boxes and rescued food, organizing neighborhood cooking sessions, workshops and other actions for the community… And at the same time, we are working to build up our Berlin-wide network, exchange ideas, and learn how we can best organize ourselves in ways that are both sustainable and scalable. This is only the beginning. We want all of our existing LMP initiatives to grow and become fully ‘finished’ LMPs. What’s more, we are looking forward to welcoming new members from all Berlin districts to start their own LMP initiatives. We want LebensMittelPunkte in every Kiez (the Berlin word for neighborhood)!
