The Municipal Markets together against food waste


Last Tuesday, November 21, Marta Higueras Garrobo, first deputy mayor and Delegate of the Government Area of Equity, Social Rights and Employment of the Madrid City Council, went to the La Paz Market to support the collection of surplus food in an event organized by the NGO Equoevento, within the initiative “Buen@provecho-Food has no waste”

This initiative carried out by ITmakES Food&Wine has the support of the Italian Embassy and the network of Municipal Markets of the Madrid City Council, the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for Spain (CCIS), the Soup kitchen of the Brotherhood of the Refuge and the Italian NGO Equoevent.

Its objective is to raise awareness in society about the large amount of food that is discarded in markets and the possibility of giving it a second life, allocating it to needy groups at risk of exclusion. It is a way of highlighting the social dimension of food, placing the Municipal Markets at the forefront of this type of actions.
