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.
Through Boroume’s "Saving & Offering Food" network more than 25.000 servings of food are saved and offered daily.
Pnoi Elpidas is an organization that operates in Thessaloniki from 2010 to support about 85 families in need..
A few days ago, Greek City Times visited an action of the program "Boroume at the Farmers’ Market" in the region of Ilisia together..
