Two socially conscientious chefs have started an initiative to feed Rio de Janeiro's hungry population with surplus food from the Olympic Village during the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

RefettoRio Gastromotiva, the project co-founded by Italian chef Massimo Bottura and Brazilian chef David Hertz, aims to offer food and dignity to people in situations of social vulnerability.

The chefs are preparing over 60,000 meals a day and a lot of it certainly goes towards forming the surplus. They aim to provide a 3-course dinner every evening from the surplus, which can be used to feed more than 1000 people.

RafettoRio Gastromotiva is supported by a team of more than 40 organizations and individuals and hopes to continue to provide free meals to the hungry population of Rio even after all the athletes and spectators go home by relying on donations from sponsors, according to the City of Rio, which has given the group the building for the next 10 years.

A noble initiative indeed!
