#RefettorioFelix incredible day for Kai today to be cooking and creating food from surplus and bringing dignity back to the table in west London. The idea of Refettorio Felix was conceived by Food for Soul, a non-profit organisation founded by renowned chef Massimo Bottura that fights against food waste in support of social inclusion and individual well-being.
