An event to reflect on local food systems to combat food poverty. Three Italian cities – Turin, Genoa and Milan – share their experiences of organizing local food systems in the context of Covid-19.
Alongside the organizations that represent the joints holding these systems together, we reflect on their progress and ongoing development throughout the course of pandemic. They may offer a new and more effective model to combat food poverty, by strengthening virtuous systems that redistributing surpluses and donations. Looking to the future, the successes of these experiences may also contribute to combating other forms of poverty.
