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!
Since 2012 we have saved and offered more than 80.000.000 portions of food with a value of 120.000.000 euros (1.5€ per portion)
Thanks to the Boroume method of saving and offering food, 1€ of operational costs results in 65 portions of food for those in need
The food we have saved is estimated at 117.600.000 CO2 eq that were not released into the atmosphere
