"Corvetto adottami": Fondazione Snam launches a call for proposals to find an organisation to take on the management of the local community Hub
Fondazione Snam launches a call for proposals to find an organisation to take on the management of the local community Hub against food waste in the 4 th Municipality of Milan. The call for proposals is advanced within the framework of "Corvetto Adottami", a three-year initiative that promotes urban regeneration and the fight against child poverty in the Corvetto district of Milan.
The initiative, which contributes to the fight against food waste in the 4 th Municipality , is part of the Foundation's activities in support of the Food Policy advanced by the Municipality of Milan, and is undertaken in partnership with the program QuBì - The recipe against child poverty promoted by Cariplo Foundation.
The call is open to third sector entities operating in the territory of the Municipality of Milan with at least 5 years' experience in managing the collection and redistribution of food surpluses for social purposes, preferably with previous experiences in managing local hubs.
In particular, the following qualities are favored in candidates:
- Presentation of the organisation in partnership with other organisations active in the same areas of redistribution of surpluses. The requirement of no less than 5 years of previous experience does not apply to partners;
- Adoption of an experimental approach through which the manager / partnership undertakes to
monitor the impact of the work of the food hub in relation to:
-monitoring of what the final beneficiaries receive / qualitative and quantitative monitoring methods of what is collected and redistributed;
-qualitative and quantitative monitoring of collected and redistributed food;
-information about the beneficiaries' family unit such as number of members / food expenditure;
-ability to provide a database for sharing data with the project partners, which can track both the organizations that receive the recovered food and the final beneficiary in compliance with current regulations;
- Active contribution to the identification and involvement of new food surplus donors.
The collaboration established with the partners also provides for the provision, by the Municipality of Milan, of a space in which the Hub will be realized for a minimum duration of 4 years.
The selected organisation will receive a grant of € 70,000 from Fondazione Snam to be used for the construction of the Hub, together with the technical sponsorship consisting of its own human, relational and know-how resources.
There is time until September 27 to submit your application!
