The Comedor (sp. dining room) will restore and renovate neglected spaces transforming them into inspiring community kitchens where people in situations of social vulnerability (homeless) can feel welcome. Chefs share their creativity and expertise by cooking meals using surplus ingredients. By doing so, we raise awareness of the value of food and of the importance of quality and hospitality to restore dignity.
The Comedor will provide weekly volunteer opportunities for members of the community to engage and connect with our most vulnerable members. This innovative model repurposes common spaces and allows communities to fight food waste through social inclusion.
