Food for Good
Food recycling gets underway through the project “Food for Good – from Meetings to Solidarity”
Food has always been one of Italy’s major attractions and as from today there is one more reason why good food can make a difference during events in Italy.
An important project for the recycling of surplus food at conferences and events, named FOOD FOR GOOD–From meetings to solidarity, jointly carried out by Federcongressi&eventi as well as by the non¬profit organizations Banco Alimentare and Equoevento, is under way in the whole of the Italian meetings industry.
Meal times, during conferences, congresses or events, are a great opportunity for conviviality and sociability, where taste, high quality and abundance are the stars. Should it happen that not all the food is consumed, the excess can be retrieved for the purpose of social solidarity.
With simple operations, the excess food can be donated to Banco Alimentare or Equoevento NPOs, which will deliver it to facilities assisting people in need – not far away but always nearby.
Convention Bureau Italia is proud to support FederCongressi&Eventi, Banco Alimentare and EquoEvento in spreading awareness of the positive social impact that events can have for host destinations and their people in need.
Since 2017 Convention Bureau Italia has decided to assign the Heart Membership every year to companies that stand out for particularly interesting Corporate Program Responsibility projects.
In 2017 the Heart Membership was assigned to Dynamo Academy and in 2018 to Assisi Turismo+.
