WE FIGHT FOR A BETTER FOOD USAGE

Fundació Espigoladors is a non-profit organisation which fights against food waste and losses, while empowering people at risk of social exclusion from a transformative, participative, inclusive and sustainable way.

We are a social enterprise model which works for three social needs at once and interconnects them: fighting for a better food usage, guaranteeing the right to a healthy diet and creating job opportunities for collectives at risk of social exclusion.

HOW WE DO IT

In Espigoladors we give second opportunities to ugly and imperfect fruits and vegetables and to beautiful people.

gleanings

We harvest fruits and vegetables that are not suitable for the market through gleanings with the help of volunteers.

donation

Most of the fruits and vegetables that we collect are distributed to social entities in order to reach people who do not have access to them.

We transform the other recovered produce in preserves while giving job opportunities to people at risk of social exclusion.
