We began in 2011 with 12 cheese pies we saved from a refreshment shop and offered them to the local soup kitchen. See below what we have done since then!
We save and offer more than 24.000 portions of food every day
Thanks to the Boroume method of saving and offering food, 1€ of operational costs results in 45 portions of food for those in need
Since 2011 we have saved and offered more than 36.000.000 portions of food with a value of 54.000.000 euros (1.5€ per portion)
