Jos Meijers was shocked about the lack of fresh produce at the foodbank. Therefore he initiated Toentje, together with the Gemeente Groningen and de Stadse Voedselbank. At Toentje, people from all layers of society join forces to produce fresh vegetables for the foodbank. Toentje has a community garden, restaurant Bie de Buuf and collaborates with locals to contribute to sustainable and social products, such as honey from Groning and beer from Baxbier!
