Stadin safka – more than just food aid

Stadin safka develops the food aid process in Helsinki together with other food aid actors and utilises surplus food to benefit people. Stadin safka is a cooperation between the City of Helsinki and the Parish Union of Helsinki.

At the heart of operations is the surplus food terminal in Tapulikaupunki. In the terminal we re-packet and store surplus food from shops and the food industry so that it can be used by food aid operators.

We develop food aid to support people’s inclusion and help build community. As part of the process of developing food aid, we also provide support and guidance for people to help them solve their problems.

What is Stadin safka?

Stadin safka’s objective is to increase the well-being of the residents of Helsinki and reduce climate impacts by utilising surplus food.
