Les Capucines – “La Transformerie” project
The social grocery store Les Capucines, located in the Marolles neighbourhood of Brussels, has set up the project “La Transformerie – Healthy cuisine for all!”, with the aim of cooking unsold perishables (vegetables, fruit, etc.) to transform them into low-priced quality (side) dishes. This initiative not only contributes to combatting food wastage, but also to raising beneficiaries’ awareness of the benefits of “eating well” and of what is “home-made”.
The Périer-D’Ieteren Foundation’s support will help fit out the kitchen (purchase and installing of equipment) where “La Transformerie” is set to start its activities in 2022.
