Food should not only taste good but
also do good for society

Food as a transformation agent

Food has great power to transform lives and is the most inclusive tool to reach the largest number of people in need. We believe that everyone deserves opportunities and dignity, and food can offer just that.

Education is key for change

Through free vocational kitchen training, food entrepreneur classes, nutrition and sustainable food education, food waste programs and the sole creation of opportunities, we empower and inspire those living on the margins of society and invests in young talent.

Learning how to cook is not enough

We not only prepare qualified actors for the hospitality industry, but also aspire to form responsible and more conscious citizens that are all willing to give back to society. We are contributing to their personal and professional growth as well as the communities they live in.

Fighting food waste

Did you know that we could feed the entire planet only with the food that we waste along the food value chain? At Refettorio Gastromotiva, our food waste restaurant school, we recuperate food and souls every day, while raising awareness on the vicious circle of food waste around the world.

We are not alone

We are a large network of organizations, gastronomic businesses, chefs and companies creating this movement together. This is the foundation of Social Gastronomy.

International Expansion

After more than 10 years successfully operating in Brazil we have started spreading our impact, taking our know how <br/> and experience to new countries. In 2016 Gastromotiva arrived in Mexico, and started a project together with ICT (link to ICT) in South Africa.
