Every year, roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption is lost or wasted – approximately 1.3 billion tonnes of food. This includes almost half of all fruit and vegetables produced, it’s as if we threw away 4 trillion apples every year!
Food insecurity affects 815 million people worldwide, the 11 per cent of the global population. Our guests are people with little or no access to resources and opportunities, who live in situations of social vulnerability and feel isolated and marginalised from their community.
Stefi and Marco have lived together homeless for the last nine years in a small train station near Milan. Thanks to Don Giuliano they became guests at Refettorio Ambrosiano where they are known for their creativity: Marco composes songs while Stefi writes poems and makes bracelets.
