A contribution to common good
The four benefits of our activity
Food which is still perfectly edible is recovered and redistributed for free to charities, that in turn redistribute the food to people in need.
This way, charities can allocate their own resources to enhance their services.
Redistributing food surplus donated by companies results in the recovery of the economic value of the food,
as well as in the reduction of costs for storage and disposal of such food to companies.
Recovery of food surplus prevents the food from becoming waste, which also prevents wasting the energy, water and soil needed for production and disposal.
This results in a reduction of the environmental impact of the food on climatic changes as it reduces the CO2 equivalent generated.
Banco Alimentare promotes and implements activities aimed at educating people on the importance of giving value to food and of not wasting it, as well as of raising awareness around the themes of poverty, food poverty, healthy diets and volunteering.
