Die Foodbrücke is linking three global issues – neighborhood communication, economic & social inclusion and food sustainability. With the 70-years anniversary of the ‘Berliner Luftbrücke’, Die Foodbrücke implies a future-oriented vision of a more connected and sustainable neighborhood around our area of interest – the Tempelhof Field area. Die Foodbrücke builds bridges through food within the neighborhood. These are bridges which are supposed to overcome fragmentation and exclusion in our society and to sensitize the people and make them aware of the mentioned social and economic problems. These mental and physical bridges address further the lack of sustainability in our society through increased neighborhood communication and neighborhood bonds through our tool for transformation – the Foodbrücke. In addition, our mobile food and communication tool mobilizes and distributes knowledge about sustainable economies and food sustainability.
A physical structure, co-produced together with local initiatives, supports these mental bridges – our Foodbrücke-Mobile, which is a bike trailer consisting of a foldable table and thermo-storages for cooked food. The performance of this tool includes cooking together with different neighbors, get to know their cultures, their own food codes, and bring differently stratified neighbors together during cooking actions. The Foodbrücke thus serves as a communication and connection tool – because nothing connects people more than sharing a good meal.
