Our activities

Training, sharing knowledge and best practice

FEBA organises several activities in order to reinforce the capacity building of its membership and share experience and expertise.


Skill-sharing session “City food recovery vs food poverty”

The session focused on sharing information about the recovery and redistribution of fresh and cooked food from the distribution and the catering sector. Moreover, thanks to the availability of Fondazione Banco Alimentare Onlus to share their knowledge and expertise, it was possible to follow their daily operation activities. In the morning of October 29th, during the last day, a wrap-up session has been planned in order to exchange opinions, to reinforce new learnings and to drive next steps for the recovery and redistribution of fresh and cooked food from the distribution and catering sector.
