Eating for charity

Eating for charity

The Project “Cozinha com Alma” (Cook/Kitchen with Soul) is a solidarity take-away initiative where all the profits go to provide a social grant to support middle and lower-middle class families in deep financial difficulties. The families have been selected by the local authority social commission.

Why it matters

In the current financial and social crisis where people are carefully selecting how they spend their money, this can be a way of starting or expanding a business. By sponsoring these type of solidarity businesses, big brands can effectively contribute to social causes not with money but with their own products as well. How can businesses contribute in a more direct way - and on a local level -  during hard economic times?
