This is a project that creates a community that is fighting against food waste. For 4 years, on Saturdays, we are going to three different street markets in Turin and we collect fruits and vegetables that we divide between the people that are part of this community. Although it is open for everyone, we actively promote equal opportunities and active participation of people with fewer opportunities.
Since October 2015 we are enlarging our project of collection on the unsold goods on the street markets. Already present since 2012 on the zone 3 in Turin, it is now being implemented also on zones 5 and 8. In the selected markets, every Saturday before the closing, the families and the staff of Eufemia, meet and go through the market sellers’ desks to collect what can’t be sold on Monday. After they share all together the goods, according to the number of people in the families. Every week we collect around 500kg of food for more than 50 people.
