Too crooked, too fat, to short… About 10 per cent of vegetables and fruit in The Netherlands are wasted because of their ‘looks’ or due to overproduction. Kromkommer brings these crooked vegetables back in our plates. This company is one of the social enterprises that moved into the Social Impact Factory (SIF), where QKunst has an office day every Wednesday.
In October, team member Steven de Haas organised a special meet up for SIF members. The Life Goals Foundation, one of the first organisations to set foot in SIF, was one of the participants. Life Goals helps vulnerable people return to society through sports. Illustrator Michelle de Gruijter was there and drew live portraits of everyone in the room. In the new year, QKunst will make its own social impact contribution through art. More about this in our next newsletter.
SIF is housed in the former Staffhorst building.
