Articles about the SGM



A few words on our work:

Gastromotiva was founded in 2006 by brazilian chef David Hertz. Through free vocational kitchen training, entrepreneurial classes, nutrition and sustainable food education, food waste programs, and the sole creation of opportunities, we empower and inspire those living on the margins of society as well as invest in young talent. We are present in 4 countries and have trained over 4500 youngsters. Our most observed project is a Food Waste Restaurant School in Rio de Janeiro, launched during the Rio Olympics together with Chef Massimo Bottura and food journalist Alexandra Forbes, called Refettorio Gastromotiva. It is a restaurant school that offers free dinners in dignity for the most vulnerable of Rio de Janeiro, all out of food surplus. It became our first Social Gastronomy Hub.

Our most recent endeavour is the Social Gastronomy Movement (SGM) a human centered Movement that aims to read and replicate the Social Gastronomy's best practices, by connecting relevant stakeholders. We announced the Movement during the WEF in Davos and had our first global gathering in April in Miami, where we invited 70 leaders to participate to the co-creation of the next steps of the Movement. We have 3 more international gatherings planned in the next 12 months, and are launching an online community platform, as well as are planning to pilot 6 Social Gastronomy Hubs as of August 2018.
