This proposal has its cornerstones in hospitality and training aimed at working and housing autonomy. The activities offered concern the reception, referral to the internal or territorial services of the city of Turin, the psychological, legal and social support of the guests and the care of the education of the minor guests. The project, for the year 2022/2023, has a strong vocation for training in the gastronomic field and provides for specific courses with the aim of increasing the employability and autonomy opportunities of women at risk of social exclusion. Specifically, the beneficiaries of this gastronomic training are women with a migration background.

The project offers temporary accommodation for 8 mother/child nuclei (for a maximum of about 22 people), with the aim of offering a response to the primary needs of the beneficiaries in order to create the conditions for working and housing independence.

Specifically, the University of Gastronomic Sciences, in the Pollenzo Food Lab facilities, will develop a theoretical/practical training laboratory lasting 16 hours.
