Unleash the potential of citizens and social economy organizations
Pursue efficient use of materials, energy, and water
The project fa bene in Torino recovers food surpluses and spontaneous donations from buyers from the local markets of Foroni and Chieti and provides them to low-income households in the neighbourhood.
Customers can purchase a bit more of the product which they buy at the participating stalls in the market. This a bit more is given to the fa bene project. At the end of the day unsold products which are not taken back by the stallholders, are also offered to the fa bene project.
The initiative is actively supported by a range of stakeholders from local associations to pub- lic authorities, market retailers to consumers.
After 1 year, the project has brought together 60 market retailers, 15 volunteers, 2,000 kg of unsold products and 800 kg of food offered by customers.
