Founded in 2006 by chef and social entrepreneur David Hertz, Gastromotiva is co-creator of the Social Gastronomy Movement (SGM).This global initiative attracts people, projects, companies, universities, international agencies, governments and civil society around the transformative power of food. Hunger, wastage, lack of opportunity, obesity and malnutrition are global challenges that require joint action.
