The Chef is back
One of the main project partners is “The Chef is Back,” a gastronomic company that uses organic products for the production and preparation of food, seeking to contribute positively to vulnerable communities. Its role in the project, apart from guaranteeing the purchase of the products grown in the gardens at a fair and competitive price, is to support the adaptation of the gardens and to accompany community activities.
