They come from Benin, Mali, Pakistan, Senegal and Maghreb.

They are between 17 and 19 years old, they carry a heavy luggage coming from all they have already experienced, and yet they have a light inside that makes them believe they still have a chance to make their dream come true thanks to food. By learning a job, fitting into a new community, telling a story, their story, to those who want to listen.

The first 30 boys and girls to be included in the path to social, working and living inclusion as planned by the Youth & Food: food as a way to blend in project are located in the cities of Turin and Agrigento. They will come to Terra Madre with the restaurant owners who welcomed them, to tell their stories and prove that food can be an efficient tool for social, political, work and economical inclusion.
