Founded by Worldchefs, powered by The Electrolux Food Foundation and Aiesec, FEED THE PLANET is extending the successful zero-waste culinary training program for unemployed people to a second location in Brazil. Plans are also in place to launch the program in Argentina, Russia and Egypt in the near future.

 

With a focus on reducing food waste, the Electrolux Food Foundation launched a culinary training program as a pilot in Curitiba, Brazil, in September 2017. 

 

Since then, 34 people – mostly women – have been trained. Out of the first batch of 18 students, eight have already found new jobs. 

 

“The team in Curitiba – together with our partners Worldchefs and AIESEC – took this sketch of an idea, developed and implemented it in a way that exceeded everyone’s expectations. This has inspired us to replicate the program in other locations,” says Malin Ekefalk, Director of Social Responsibility at Electrolux.
