SPAR Italy licence holder, Maiora Srl, participated in the organisation of a special, multi-ethnic dinner for local youth and refugees at the Lending a Hand Open Centre in Corato, Bari on 2 March.

Leading retail company in Southern Italy, DeSPAR Maiora donated all the ingredients required to prepare various Mediterranean dishes. The joyful experience was aimed at bringing people together and promoting a sense of community.

“The best cooks from Corato were called upon to create a special menu, combining the flavours and aromas of different Mediterranean and North African cuisines. The delicious food that was served became a topic that fuelled much conversation at the dinner tables,” a team from the Kaleidoscope association said.

The contribution provided by Maiora made it possible for the event to be free-of-charge for participants. The young residents of Corato, with various backgrounds in terms of ethnicity, culture and religion, were invited to join the event.

“Maiora, motivated by a great sense of responsibility, recognises how much it owes to the local communities in which it operates,” commented Luigi Peschechera, Buying and Marketing Manager at Maiora. “For this reason, we try to express our gratitude not only by working to the highest standards on a daily basis, but also by contributing to initiatives that nourish the social, human and cultural layers of our communities.”
