EYES France – Gleaning and cooking action

EYES France – Gleaning and cooking action

On Saturday 25th of January, YITs members froms both teams (Vaulx-en-Velin and Oullins/Confluence) were joined by Youth for Climate Lyon members and KAPS roomates (students with lower rent in exchange of involvement in environmental project) to participate in a gleaning and cooking action with products from the “Mas du Taureau” market in Vaulx-en-Velin.

At the end of the market, the group asked local merchants to get some unsold food for free, and picked up abandoned food boxes.

Then, the group went into the “Maison pour Agir” (a flat used to develop local initiatives for ecological and social transition) to cook with all this food picked up (just adding some basic ingredients) during the afternoon and share a meal together !

A great action to measure concretely the amount of food waste !
