In these times of pandemic, restrictions and confinement, Italian sociologist Luciana Morgera has set up Zero Km Food, a “local food chain” helping the weakest and allowing them to have access to food.
It is basically a group to exchange fresh produce from the vegetable patch, which provides outlets for those who live off the work of the land while installing a sense of solidarity joint responsibility between buyers and producers (vegetable plots, vineyards, fruit, etc.).
The initiative originates from ‘Borsa Verde 3.0’, a food exchange created years ago. Anyone can participate, the only condition is that the food is local, pesticide-free (organic) and traded locally.
Obviously, all exchanges take place in strict compliance with the drastic containment measures decreed by the Italian authorities.
Grazie, Luciana, we are #UnitedinDistance.
