Salvacomidas Mission

Salvacomidas Mission is a set of educational activities to raise awareness and educate children about food waste and its consequences, as well as strategies to combat it.

Salvacomidas Mission Workshops

The activities developed within this project are designed to increase shared knowledge and collaborative work, promoting a change towards more sustainable and healthy consumption habits, and reducing the footprint of our food systems.

With a total duration of approximately 1h30, the main objective is to raise awareness in the community about the issue of food waste, and teach them to rethink and reflect, to reduce their food footprint by adopting innovative practices and creative ways in which they can change their habits towards healthier practices and also help to reduce the amount of food waste at a local level. In doing so, we generate a source of knowledge on food waste available to all and engage consumers and participants through an active methodology that makes the goal of zero waste accessible and effective. The activities are aimed at children over 7 years of age.

Another Huerto

With this project Los Salvacomidas showed that sustainability and nutrition can extend their walls to other fields like the cinema. Another Way Film Festival is a great example as it is based on sustainability in which there is a parallel activity called Another Huerto.

Another Huerto was held online due to COVID-19 where games and educational material were provided by “Los Salvacomidas”, and they learnt how to build their own kitchen garden.

Also, “Los Salvacomidas” launched a contest in social media with the hashtag #HuertoLosSalvacomidas where participants could win a Popcorn maker if they guessed a riddle related to the topic.


Zarautz4teens is a programme with the objective of transmitting values of surfing and competition among the youngest people organised by Aritz Aranburu (professional surfer). EIT Food has joined forces with him as his team to share food-related knowledge and healthy living, with activities organised to provide clear information about the agrifood sector, climate change and healthy lifestyle in a fun and easy way to understand.

El Olivar | Didactic workshop

EIT Food and Acesur bring olive oil culture to schools in Andalusia with the programme El Olivar-Educando en la alimentación del futuro (The Olive Grove-Educating in the food of the future).

A total of 276 children in pre-school and primary education in Andalusia have participated directly in the different activities carried out by the El Olivar - Educating in the food of the future programme, the initiative promoted by EIT Food and Acesur with the aim of transmitting to the new generations the importance of olive oil in our gastronomy and our culture, as well as in our food industry. The project, carried out between October and December with the collaboration of the Juan Ramón Guillén Foundation, has been very well received by the educational community, with a total of 673 schools from 346 municipalities in the eight Andalusian provinces registered.


For a day, children (7 to11 years) from Zaragoza and their parents could enjoy time together while gaining knowledge about zero waste. Children discovered new ways of creating soap with leftovers from different materials, such as used oil or play dough. Meanwhile, parents learned how to cook delicious recipes made by leftovers.

In the course of the event, families could demonstrate their wisdom in a contest about zero waste and end the day with a gymkhana, where they had to overcome questions and challenges to become a real Salvacomidas agent.


Los Salvacomidas stopped by the Science and Technology Station (Burgos) to meet up with future Salvacomidas agents. Throughout the event, Los Salvacomidas educated families about their eating habits, children took part in a workshop about zero waste and, finally, every family member played a gymkhana to prove their new knowledge obtained.

Career Day

Career Day was created to inspire young talents in their career path and rise awareness about agrifood industry. Lots of students are concerned about their future, but not many are aware of the wide range of career opportunities.

Los Salvacomidas gathered almost 100 students through several weeks to introduce them into the agrifood system. Students had a training phase to get familiar with the industry and its different professional possibilities. Later on, they put into practice what has been learned in an event called Food 4 Future, which fosters innovation in agrifood.

That event was held in the morning of May 18, 2023. Students were able to live a real professional experience by engaging with agrifood experts, discovering innovative technology or trying new food.

Santiago de Compostela

The 2nd edition of the School Programme had very special participants, whose project overwhelmed the jury because of the commitment and creativity put into the work. Hence, Los Salvacomidas decided to come back to the school to launch the 3rd edition.

On September 27, 2023, over 50 students from Trisquel International School (Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, Spain) came together to try out the new interactive video games of Los Salvacomidas. They also enjoyed a day full of fun and healthy activities to fight against food waste and unhealthy eating habits, such as creating creative and healthy fruit salads and planning zero waste meals.
