After our recent communication with the municipality of Marathon, we were informed about their current needs in food to support the fire victims in the area as well as the beneficiaries of the soup kitchen that operates in the Municipality to support people in financial difficulties.
Boroume’s course in the world of reducing food waste and increasing food donations in Greece now amounts to 6 years, during which-among other things-we have saved and offered more than 24 million food portions, thus supporting more than 600 charitable institutions throughout Greece..
We are delighted with the beautiful festival that we organized with the Municipality of Chalandri, on Saturday 13 October at the central square of Chalandri, on the occasion of World Food Day (16/10).
We were particularly interested in the second meeting of the "Action and implementation" sub-group of the EU Platform on Food Losses and Food Waste.
It is a great pleasure for Boroume to have strong allies, such as the Greek Chef’s Club, by them to reduce food waste. From 2017, when we started our collaboration with the Greek Chef 's Club until today, whenever there is an action and leftover food, its members always make sure to offer it with the help of Boroume to people in need.
This year, three cooperating charitable institutions decided to continue the actions of the programme "Boroume at the Farmers’ Market" during August, despite minor difficulties due to a reduced number of volunteers.
Many times in the farmers’ markets where we save and offer whatever is left over at the end of the day, we see unusual fruits and vegetables. And yes, in the past few years we have seen some tens of potatoes heart shaped!
For the second consecutive year the company Septona has supported Boroume’s program "We are Family" in order to offer staple foods for 1 month to families in need.
