How does Roodkappje work?

Roodkappje is a community driven platform that supports small local businesses digitize and survive beyond the COVID-19 crisis, while safely bringing fresh & healthy groceries to hundreds of homes in Amsterdam. Grocery shopping has never been so convenient and impactful. Our team helps Albert Cuyp market stall owners bring their product portfolio online without sacrificing their profit margins and connects them with superhero volunteers who bundle and deliver the groceries for free and contactless. We believe in the power of local communities. The support our volunteers, customers and business owners give each other is heartwarming. The prices you see on Roodkappje are those the market stall owners also ask directly on the market

Who are we?

The team of Roodkappje met remotely during the innovation hackathon "Hack the Crisis" with the ambition to come up with a creative solution to the question of how volunteers can help local businesses in times of crisis. Within 48 hours, Roodkappje was born. Roodkappje keeps growing and is enriched by tenths of eager volunteers contributing to this community driven movement.
