A new Refood unit was opened last Saturday, July 29, in Almancil. The project won the funding in the parish Participatory Budget 2016 round of applications for local community projects.
The new modular unit is equipped with a kitchen and toilet and will support the work of the association as part of the Zero Waste Movement.
The unit is an expansion of the centre of operations located in Rua Salgueiro Maia, next to Almancil market area, which was inaugurated in 2015.
The new facility was the proposal that received the highest number of votes in the parish of Almancil in last year's Participatory Budget, winning €65,000 of investment.
The Refood project is a 100% voluntary, humanitarian and community-based eco-effort made by and for citizens at a micro-local level to end hunger in urban neighborhoods.
The reuse of food from local restaurants is distributed to needy families.
The idea is simply to connect those who have a daily surplus to those who have a daily need.
