To disseminate the potential of food as a social change agent in the market, we developed a unique network of gastronomic establishments and chefs who share their knowledge with the students and provide them with job opportunities, while filling an important skills gap. All these wonderful partners not only contribute with knowledge and employment, but also support us financially.
You and your restaurant can be part of this social transformation through food with us. Get in contact with email@example.com and let's find a way together.

"The pleasure of meeting young people, committed to create, to work hard and give back to society all that was invested in them, is immensely gratifying. To be part of a network such as Gastromotiva, which believes in social transformation and personal growth through gastronomy, is to impact generations of young people who have always wanted an opportunity to improve their lives. It is an exchange of opportunities and fundamental learning for the growth of the gastronomic market. Businessmen and collaborators are creating a great effort to change the country and this is already a reality. Congratulations, Gastromotiva!"
"When I first heard of Gastromotiva, my initial concern was to learn about the project´s format. Once I understood its concept, I believed Confeitaria Colombo would benefit a great deal with this qualified workforce and today we have over 15 employees who are Gastromotiva graduates. We believe in people. They are the ones who make businesses prosper or not. Whenever there is need for hiring, our first option is always Gastromotiva´s students. Their enthusiasm and desire to grow captivates us all."
“From the very first moment I heard about Gastromotiva, I thought it was a wonderful idea. If every one of us contributes a little to the cause, we will have a movement able of making a difference and generating a significant change. Gastromotiva graduates who work for me are better prepared for the job market and more responsible and committed."
“Gastromotiva has two important roles in my opinion. Besides the social aspect of working with the community, it also enables me to be in contact with the other partners in the supporting restaurants´ network. This way I can share experiences on common subjects with the other chefs.”
"In the first ten minutes of conversation with David at the Complexo do Alemão, I understood the mission and importance of Gastromotiva. I had a poor childhood and could have really benefited from a qualification such as this. When I was 18, I wanted to take a gastronomy course but didn´t have a high school degree or money, I had to follow the harder and longer road and learn on my own. This is why today I want to help and really believe in this cause. I know what it´s like for these young kids with no help."
"This is the great transformation or big deal at Gastromotiva. The kids arrive with consciousness, social consciousness, personal hygiene consciousness, food safety consciousness – a proper work conduct in the kitchen."
