Electrolux is supporting Stockholm City Mission to open a social restaurant. This restaurant serves meals prepared using surplus food from Stockholm City Mission’s food bank. The project also focuses on labor integration as newly arrived immigrants and long-term unemployed will be trained in the restaurant to enable them to get a job in a professional kitchen.
The partnership with Stockholm City Mission will also provide a platform for education of Electrolux employees, consumers and the broader public on sustainable food consumption.
