LIFE FOSTER PROJECT
Co-financed by the EU Commission LIFE Programme and led by the Italian network for VET, ENAIP NET, the LIFE FOSTER project aims at reducing waste in the restaurant industry.
The project focuses on these main fields: TRAINING AND EDUCATION, PREVENTION AND COMMUNICATION.
More information may be found on the project’s website - https://www.lifefoster.eu/newsletter-foster/
The LIFE FOSTER project will implement a bottom-up approach involving the education of trainee chefs, kitchen staff and front-of-house restaurant personnel.
This will be coupled with promotion of the project’s findings through seminars and workshops targeting restaurant staff and owners, networking with other LIFE projects dealing with food waste, and through the engagement of policy stakeholders.
The project will culminate in a Food waste ‘hackathon’ in the final year, where three ITS students will compete against students of the other partner countries in designing and cooking the most food-efficient menu.
