OTB FOUNDATION AND TERRE DES HOMMES: TOGETHER IN SUPPORTING FAMILIES IN NEED AND FIGHTING AGAINST FOOD WASTE
Winner of 2020 OTB Foundation’s “Brave actions for a Better World” call, Terre Des Hommes Italia non-profit stood out with its “SpesaSospesa” project.
The Covid emergency and the resulting economic crisis have generated a million new poor in Italy, with an increase of 40% in requests for food aid. The “Spesasospesa” project, designed by Terre des Hommes and Lab00, supports families in need, supporting them in the supply of basic necessities and food. The initiative, launched in May and already active in 7 Italian municipalities, will involve at least 5 thousand people in 5 additional municipalities: Milan, Molfetta (Ba), Magione (Pg) Granarolo (Bo) and Cervia (Ra).
“Spesasospesa” will also contribute to reducing food waste through the “Regusto” digital platform, based on blockchain technology, that networks municipalities, non-profit organizations and local businesses, ensuring the transparency of donations and allowing a drastic reduction in waste.
