What if change started with food?

The Social Gastronomy Movement (SGM) uses the power of food and gastronomy to address global societal issues such as, inequality, hunger, the double burden of malnutrition, unsustainable food systems and unemployment.

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.
