The Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo, in collaboration with Slow Food, is organizing a second event for reflection and debate on the theme of territorial food systems to combat food poverty.

In particular, Turin, Milan and Genoa will talk about how the local food systems, which have become structured and strengthened partly as a result of the pandemic, can represent an opportunity to listen and respond to other dimensions of need, acting as a key to intercepting and understanding new and old social fragilities and effectively directing people to the services and various forms of support available at local level.

Starting from the experiences of the three cities, also in the light of what has been learned in the pandemic context, the event will be an opportunity to discuss their programmatic lines, to continue the work of redesigning actions to combat growing poverty.
