What if change started with food?
The Social Gastronomy Movement (SGM) is a human-centred movement that addresses global societal issues such as inequality, hunger, the double burden of malnutrition, unsustainable food systems, and unemployment.
This global initiative aims to aggregate, internalize, and disseminate Social Gastronomy (SG) best practices by connecting different, relevant stakeholders creating a strong and connected community. Gastronomy can be one of the most effective and inclusive tools in the fight against hunger and poverty; and while projects led by different chefs and entrepreneurs are emerging around the world, the full potential of this Movement has not been achieved yet. Therefore, creating connections and pathways to share information will help to broaden and strengthen the network.
