Mr Marcus Godinho, CEO of One Umbrella delivered his presentation, “Two Million Meals”, at the recent Sustainable Cities Round Table on Sustainable Food Systems, 28 May. One Umbrella addresses both issues of social AND environmental sustainability – collecting food that cannot be used and turn it into nutritious meals for the homeless and hungry of Melbourne. In 2006/7, One Umbrella provided 428,000 meals at no cost to agencies working with the homeless and hungry while they also reduced the amount of food going to landfill by approximately 140 tonnes!
