Food for Good
Food for Good is a Federcongressi&eventi project to combat food waste by collecting and redistributing the surplus food left over at the end of conferences. The project was inspired by the 2015 Italian National Institute Statistics Office (ISTAT) survey that pointed out that over 4 million people in Italy live in a state of absolute poverty and that one out of ten children suffers from hunger. The results of the first edition speak for themselves: 16,599 ready meals and 222 kg of bread and fruit were recovered and donated.
