5th SavingFood Project meeting in Athens and participation to Farmer’s market in Vironas, Greece.

On 8 – 9th of June 2017, the SavingFood community met in Athens, Greece to attend the 5th project meeting, that Boroume hosted in the beautiful facilities of Impact Hub Athens. After a fruitful meeting, the team decided to take a unique opportunity and rescue the food at the farmer’s market of Vironas.

One of our food rescue scenarios is the farmer’s market and Boroume is very well connected in Athens. Apart from the pilot partners, the coordination and technical team were occasionally or never involved in food saving activities.

The evening was approaching and around 3 am cest, we left the city centre and we arrived at the farmers market in Vironas to join the food saving activities with the Boroume team and their volunteers!

We have proudly managed to collect a respectful amount of food, fruits and vegetables which otherwise would have ended in waste. The collected products were distributed by “Boroume” to organizations in need.

There are many events to come, don’t miss them!

Sincerely the SavingFood Team
