Despar Northeast

In 2016 Fratelli dell'Uomo began a CSR project with DESPAR NORDEST: the aim was to create an opportunity for encounter and dialogue between the citizens of Mestre, where the INTERSPAR supermarket is located, and the migrant communities living in the area, encouraging a space for integration and inter-culture.

We organized our cooking and culture course: "Eat and learn: spices and knowledge" in November 2016 at INTERSPAR in Mestre: 3 evenings of ethnic cuisine (Chinese, Nigerian, Romanian) in which participants had the opportunity to get in touch with cultures and countries other than their own by cooking together. The course was so successful that DESPAR NORDEST decided to repeat it also in 2017 with 3 new evenings: Lebanese, Bosnian and Filipino cuisine.
