Los Salvacomidas

Los Salvacomidas is the answer to all your problems. Well, it is not but it is for children’s malnutrition and food waste.

The project teaches and educates children the meaning of a healthy
diet and “Zero waste” for a healthful future.

Malnutrition is one of the biggest issues of our society and sadly, children are suffering the most. What kind of future will children have if they don’t know how to eat properly?

Concerned about the problem, a group of companies and associations have created “Los Salvacomidas”, a project that aims to teach and educate children from a very young age, the basic knowledge and skills of nutrition that will shape their years to come. Also, an important highlight of the initiative is that they promote ”zero waste” movement. 

But nothing can be achieved if they don’t act, thus “Los Salvacomidas” have carried out some initiatives through the years:

COVID – 19

During the world pandemic, “Los Salvacomidas” provided 60.000 children’s menus to families in need. The menus also included educational material to teach healthy eating habits.

Another huerto

Los Salvacomidas took part in Another Huerto, activity of Another Way Film Festival. They provided games and educational material and they showed participants how to create their own kitchen garden.

Robin Food

Robin Food, a project created by EIT Food, gives work to vulnerable collectives who offer new life to those leftovers, transforming them into new food products, for example vegetable soups. The food products are being launched in Spain, The Netherlands and Belgium.

School Initiative (Primary & Secondary)

This is an innovative educational programme open to Primary and Secondary students. The programme fosters nutritional education and “zero waste” politics through projects, original activities, training courses, didactic videos and more. Also, aiming to Secondary students, it looks to open their minds and start their path in entrepreneurship and the agrifood system.
