AMCHAM: CR Committee in an effort to reduce food waste

19.10.2021 Share

The effort to reduce food waste is a material and highly impactful way to make the best of urban living, in support of people in need. On Sept 18th 2021, the CR Committee of the American – Hellenic Chamber of Commerce contributed to the Boroume initiative, by collecting significant volumes of fruit and vegetables from the Panormou open market, on behalf of the Hospice for Neurodisability (Άσυλο Ανιάτων). 857 kilos of fruit, produce and fish and 215 eggs equaling to more than 3.500 portions of food, were collected and donated to the Hospice of Neuro-disability (Asylo Aniaton). #Sustainability in everyday urban living calls for an empathetic change of habit, for the benefit of our fellow man and the natural environment.
