Slow Food Italia’s Youth & Food project began in 2022 and is now in its final year. In Piedmont and Sicily, the project has facilitated the inclusion of more than 60 young migrants and unaccompanied minors by using food as a vehicle for integration, economic growth, employment, and social development.

The youth involved in the project came from Pakistan, Senegal, the Maghreb, Somalia, Mali, Benin, and Bangladesh. During the three years of the project, Slow Food supported them as they acquired training for economic integration, demonstrating the value of a new approach to redemption and dignity, one that starts with food.

Funded by the social enterprise Con i Bambini (“with the children”), the Youth & Food project brought together a range of public and private partners, including the City of Turin, the Meeting Service Catering social cooperative, and the Multiethnic Association of Intercultural Mediators in Piedmont; and the Al Kharub social cooperative, the Delfino social and health cooperative, Servizio VIII – Agrigento Employment Center, and the Agrigento Provincial Center for Adult Education in Sicily.

The panel of speakers will be published soon.

This event is free and open to all who are interested. To participate, please book a spot on the website (just click on the “Register” button on the event page and leave your email address). We recommend arriving at the Arena 10 minutes before the start of the event. The organizers reserve the right to reassign your seat if you are not present within 5 minutes of the start.

Terra Madre Salone del Gusto is presented by Slow Food, the City of Turin, and the Piedmont Region. We look forward to seeing you at Parco Dora in Turin from Thursday, September 26 – Monday, September 30. Through food, we can rediscover ourselves as part of nature. #TerraMadre2024
