Since more than four years Ansaldo Energia has begun a joint project with Fondazione Banco Alimentare Onlus (Food Bank) to recover surplus food produced at the Campi and Fegino canteens and send it to charity organizations. Uneaten cooked and fresh food from the company's canteens is packed, labelled to conserve it ready for collection by Food Bank volunteers, who take it to its destination as part of Siticibo program.
Specifically the surplus food form Ansaldo Energia and Ansaldo Nucleare is collected and used by Associazione Sole e Luna, a charity based in the former premises of the Genova Cornigliano railway station, just a few kilometers from Ansaldo Energia, with a view to promoting social relations with the local area and population. Every day, Sole e Luna volunteers collect food left over from previous evening's meal and that day's lunch, for distribution from their center to the needy, over the subsequent 24 hours period, as required by "Good Samaritan Law" (L- 155/2013)
About 70 portions on average of prepared uneaten food is collected on a daily basis from our canteens.
