Food at a cost zero

This is an initiative of some crazy dreamers who with so much ambition and will believe that from a small gesture on the part of those who have, they can help and support those who need it most.


What are we going to do

Food at no cost was born in 2016 to help and support families in difficulty through the collection and distribution of food. We have taken care of all the families who pour into a state of need.

Our initiative was born in order to limit food waste and surpluses, distributing resources directly to families thanks to our volunteers. All this is achieved thanks to the will of each of us. We started and are continuing by contributing financially by self-taxing and thanks to the help of various producers and traders who have accepted our requests by embracing our initiative.
We are currently trying to make food recovery agreements with large retailers, both traders and producers. In this period of economic crisis due to the Covid-19 epidemic, we have come to support more than 600 families.

The fight against food waste: Our goal

Raise awareness in the city on the issue of food waste. Educating the younger generations to a new relationship with the growing consumption of the territory which represents one of the great cultural challenges of our time. (Schools, commercial studios, theaters, TV and radio).
Being able to give dignity to people by inserting them into the world of work. Create and activate an organizational secretariat that manages the initiatives and maintains contact with schools, federations and institutions and responds to all the tenders present for the third sector APS Through the job requests that will arrive, we will create a database of names with the characteristics of the resource and possible job outlet so as to facilitate the insertion into the world of work in the most suitable sector. By finding agreements for those who are entering a new profession, it will be possible to give them free courses or internships

Gadda Law 166/2016

The goal of this law enacted in 2016 is to reduce waste by transforming it into opportunities to help people in need and to reduce the environmental impact. Furthermore, the Italian legislation aims to encourage virtuous behavior through incentives, tax relief and awareness campaigns.
