Serveis territorials vallès occidental

The Vallès Occidental region covers an area of 583.1 km2, groups a total of 23 municipalities in Catalonia. The Regional Council of Vallès Occidental has developed, since 2015,  a number of regional projects aimed at reducing food waste, promoting programs where the surplus that can be used for human consumption is intended to help the most vulnerable  population groups through the collaboration of several social organizations.

One of these programs is RECOOPEREM“to share your cooking”, which consists of collecting the surplus of prepared meals from the schools, private companies or other entities of the participating municipalities, and their subsequent distribution through food banks among those individuals or families in the region who need support in feeding.

More recently, the MERCAT CIRCULAR program has been launched, which consists of the social use of fruit and vegetables that cannot be sold in the regional food market, Mercavallès.

The aim is to expand the scope of these two programs and promote new lines of work in order to achieve a higher level of use and impact in the fight against food waste and the social, environmental and economic consequences that this implies.
