October 16 World Food Day

Sun 16 October 2022

On the occasion of October 16, World Food Day, Boroume put into motion an awareness campaign with the message "The best dish of the day: A dish full of food for someone who needs it".

The aim of the campaign is to inform those involved in the food chain, about how they can, through the Boroume "Saving & Offering" surplus food program, support people in need.

It is noted that today 3.1 billion people worldwide do not have access to healthy food and 828 million people are malnourished. At the national level, 28.3% of the Greek population is at risk of poverty or social exclusion and 12% experience food insecurity.

From 2012 to today Boroume has saved and offered more than 60 million portions of food to 650 non-profit organizations throughout Greece.
