Who we are

Food For Good Bcn is an initiative born from the solidarity of the gastronomy industry with the aim of cooking and distributing healthy, rich and balanced menus to the most disadvantaged people in our city, most of them homeless.

In just 48 hours, chefs, restaurateurs, purveyors and people who did not know each other have come together to initiate this initiative and join efforts to help those people that they need us more than ever, especially in times like this when we have to take care of each other more than ever.

We have a clear mission to cook and create food with excellence and to provide people in adverse situations with more healthy nutrients and balanced menus.

Mission and Values

Our mission is to provide prepared packaged food to the local non profit organizations such as the Lluís Companys Foundation, the Baluard Association, the Arrels Foundation, the Community of San Egidio or the Metzineres collective, among others, so that in situations like the one we are currently facing, they can supply hot food and nutritious meals to the most disadvantaged groups of our society.

Social Work

Food for Good Bcn aims to put tangible and intangible resources to one of the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic: feeding all those who are homeless or in a situation of social exclusion, as well as helping non profit entities that are overwhelmed by the demand.

Some of the social challenges our city faces is that the few entities that remain open have seen that the demand has been increasing, they are running out of food; given that most of their providers for such basic needs such as hotels, schools and restaurants have also closed due to this pandemic. Our main goal is to provide a solution to make sure these entities remain operational during the remainder of this global crisis and are able to embrace more citizens in need.

Entities with which we collaborate:

Operations and protocols

The food is cooked in our central kitchen at Restaurante Tierra in the heart of Barcelona where we also receive ingredients from hotels, restaurants and private companies. Our team of chefs are creating dishes with the help of our nutritionist so that the meals are well balanced and nutritious. We then package the menus and deliver them to the different NGOs.

We work hand in hand with Nutricion sin Fronteras (Nutrition without Borders), a NGO based in Barcelona and their motto is to eradicate malnutrition in the world. They are able to provide us with the food safety protocol endorsed by the Public Health Agency and are responsible for doing a biological sampling to ensure that the dishes are 100% free of pathogens and to activate a protocol for the recovery of the food.

01. Priduct delivery

We create product inventory and records including: product traceability, origin, donated quantities, expiration dates and providers.

02. HACCP (Hard Analysis and Critical Control Points)

We have a complete and rigorous control of temperature in every refrigeration system, incidences and the kitchen cleaning protocol.

03. Disinfecting the work area

Kitchen, surfaces and utensils used in the elaboration of the meals to maintain the best hygiene standards in every process.

04. We are creating menus with a nutritional content

All of our menus are nutritionally balanced containing vegetables, fruits, carbohydrates, proteins (animal and vegetal).

05. Identification of possible food allergens, food sensitivities and items of non consumption (pork)

Preparamos los menús teniendo en cuenta los diferentes grupos de alérgenos, así como los productos según las culturas alimentarias.

06. Recipe Sheets

We are developing recipe sheets to ensure all of our menu items contain the basic nutritional properties.

07. Reception and ordering of products

We maintain control of the products received to make the forecast of menus and to know the demand that we have to request from our  food and packaging providers.

08. Portion calculation

We use reverse engineering with recipe development, transforming serving portions into grammage units to understand the needs of the product and request what is necessary to supply demand.

09. Food labeling

We register the entry and exit of the food.

10. Inventory

We control all the product that enters the kitchens.

Partners

IN COOPERATION WITH

The NGO Nutrition Without Borders, whose mission is to contribute to the reduction of nutritional inequalities in the world based on human rights, from the perspective of cooperation, education and training, promoting the balanced use of food resources and the solidarity between peoples, in accordance with the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
Thanks to Nutrition Without Borders, we cook for the Lluís Companys Foundation, the Baluard Association and the Metzineres collective.

 

The Espigoladors Foundation is a social and local company that fights for the proper food use and the social and labor inclusion of those individuals with a risk of exclusion. Its main task is to recover food, directly from the fields of the primary sector, which were to be discarded from the market due to aesthetic and price policies. More than 95% of the food they recover is distributed among various distribution services to promote the right to healthy food for vulnerable people, and with the rest they make canned vegetables in their workshop, a space for labor inclusion.
Espigoladors joins Food For Good BCN to supply the population with fresh and fit-for-consumption food that would otherwise have been wasted.

 

The DKV Group is part of ERGO, one of the largest insurance groups in Germany and Europe. In Spain, DKV is implanted throughout the territory with a wide network of health insurance offices and doctor’s offices, where almost 2,000 employees work, serving nearly 2 million customers.
DKV has been promoting initiatives related to corporate responsibility for more than 20 years and is committed to disseminating and promoting actions that improve people’s health and well-being. Given the current situation, more than ever, DKV develops projects committed to our society such as medicosfrentealcovid.org or #ningunmayorsolo.
