" I am pleased to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because I have always admired it, and I firmly believe that an organization is measured by the sum of its human greatness and integrity in its men. I hold the belief that in the service for others, men can only achieve its full potential. I am very proud to be part of this program and to work with different people who share the same passion. I can't wait to know how to apply what I will learn for the service of my community and to form changes in the visible and latent problems. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Las Disfrutas - Frutos con Causa
Working side by side with the Millennium Fellowship, I intend to make a change in the production and consumption system.
I specifically seek to use fruits and vegetables that, due to aesthetic or ripening criteria, do not reach the consumer. (Fruits that still have the possibility of consumption). Project Primary objectives:
- Repurpose this merchandise into edible by-products in conjunction with an awareness campaign.
- Volunteer collaborators: chefs, restaurateurs, students of various disciplines, Millennium Fellowship colleagues, etc.
