Feed the Planet initiatives are diverse and cover the globe. What they share is the unwavering mission to inspire better food consumption and cooking habits among communities and professionals, and to help people in need through:
AWARENESS & ADVOCACY - Inspiring sustainable food consumption across the world
EMERGENCY & FOOD POVERTY RELIEF - Alleviating food shortages during emergency crises and for communities facing food poverty
EDUCATION - Support the education of people to help them put food on the table
Feed the Planet projects create empowerment and positive sustainability change across the globe, thanks to the dynamic and ongoing collaboration between Worldchefs, Electrolux and AIESEC.
Feed the Planet was founded by Worldchefs in 2012 as a way to empower and mobilize our global chefs’ network passionate about leading positive sustainability change. Chefs influence food behaviour across the globe, and believe deeply in the importance of using our voices to help ensure long-term food health and sustainability for everyone.
Since that time, Feed the Planet has grown into a dynamic collaboration with partners Electrolux Professional and AIESEC.
Electrolux promises to be a force for good in local communities, in keeping with its sustainability framework, and will initiate and drive Feed the Planet projects by engaging its business units and 60,000 employees. The projects will be backed by funding through the Electrolux Food Foundation, established in 2016.
AIESEC is an international, apolitical, independent and not-for-profit organization, entirely run by students and recent graduates eager to build positive social change.
Feed the Planet is providing culinary education & training, and with it job prospects, to the underprivileged – including many single mothers – in Curitiba, Brazil. But it is also delivering so much more – the empowerment that comes from learning new skills and opening new doors. Watch this video until the end to see unmistakable pride from this Curitiba student. #empower #betterlife #betterfuture
