Feed the Planet provides culinary training and empowerment in Curitiba, Brazil

OCTOBER 16, 2017: Our latest Feed the Planet collaboration is helping unemployed people in Curitiba, Brazil by providing the culinary skills and training they need to get a job in a professional kitchen!

The students, many of them single mothers struggling to find a job – are being trained through a curriculum developed by Worldchefs, being delivered by 12 chefs in a specially designed training kitchen at the Electrolux factory in Curitiba.
The Worldchefs curriculum aims at raising awareness about sustainable culinary practices such as zero food waste. During the ten-week period the students will learn how to provide for themselves and their families, as well as gain awareness about sustainable culinary practices such as zero food waste. The objective is to train them to find work in professional kitchens.
By helping people to get a job, this Feed the Planet project, run in a partnership between Worldchefs, Electrolux and AIESEC, will help underprivileged individuals provide for themselves and their families.
The project is supported by AIESEC volunteers; Sodexo provides cleaning services and the food; and FAS, a local non-profit organization, helps to select the participants and organize the training.
Over 60 people will be trained in three waves by mid-2018. This is a pilot project which we hope to exend to other regions in the future.
