The aim of the Taichung (meaning “center of Taiwan”) Red Cross, funded in 1965, is to fight against hunger and poverty by providing food assistance and equipment as well as a psychosocial support to deprived families.
Located in Taichung, this kitchen aims to fight against food waste while fighting exclusion, turning unsold food into healthy meals for disadvantaged people. 1/3 of the food production for human consumption is wasted, while many vulnerable people do not have access to such resources.
The Carrefour Foundation is funding the project up to €79,310, in order to equip this antigaspi kitchen with necessary material. The unsold food comes from nearby supermarkets, and allows the association to prepare 350 meals a day!
