The government of Jujuy will implement actions to rescue food that is not consumed in the commercial circuit “to collaborate with people in situations of social vulnerability,” was officially reported today.

The actions were established in a framework agreement on cooperation and technical assistance between this portfolio and the Food Bank of Jujuy, in order to “collaborate with citizens in situations of social vulnerability in the province,” the sources said.
“ It is important this cultural change and this work together, where we invite producers, people from gastronomy and other sectors to join so that we can reach more people,” said the minister.
In this vein, he said that the agency in charge of designing and managing projects for the rescue of food that are outside the commercial circuit but that are fit for consumption and “can be destined to canteens, dinners, schools and institutions that need it”.
