Expo 2015 S.pA., the Fondazione Triulza, and the Fondazione Banco Alimentare have signed an agreement whereby all excess food, fully-certified as being fit for human consumption, will be collected and made available to those in need.
For its part, Fondazione Triulza will promote the social objectives of the service. Meanwhile, Fondazione Banco Alimentare will contribute its expertise, as well as its volunteers and logistical services to the project, and Expo 2015 S.p.A. has asked all the bars, restaurants, and other food service locations to develop a plan for making available food that would otherwise go to waste.
This might include fine-tuning orders in line with the number of visitor forecasts. The response has been encouraging, and the first delivery of food was made on Sunday May 3, just three days after Expo opened, to the Fratelli San Francesco, at Gratosoglio, in Milan.
