S.Pellegrino has joined forces with Food for Soul to support their global mission to improve the health of our food system and reduce waste, while enabling inclusion and resilience.
Launched in 2016 by Chef Massimo Bottura and Lara Gilmore, Food for Soul works with local organisations, producers, artists, architects, and community leaders to renovate underused spaces, transforming them into "Refettorios": inspiring community hubs where nutritious meals made with surplus ingredients are served to people in need. To date, the organisation has opened 10 Refettorios around the world, from Milan to Rio de Janeiro.
In the words of Stefano Marini, Sanpellegrino Group CEO, “Joining Food for Soul’s diverse network of partners is an exciting opportunity for us to reinforce our commitment to enabling social change and shaping lives for the better.”
“A more sustainable future is not built by one but through the collective action of many,” added Chef Massimo Bottura. “With S.Pellegrino and Chefs around the world, we can inspire the Academy of young chefs to take action and lead us into a better future of zero waste.”
At the heart of the new partnership is the common belief in the value of hospitality and in the power of taste and creativity to transform people’s lives for the better, creating shared value and cultural change.
