3D Project © Tétris

In 2021, we are going to create É UMA MESA, a new project in the catering area, which aims to be an innovative response to social inclusion through the labor market. A restaurant which is open to the public, where the service will be provided by people in vulnerable situations, namely, homeless people, people in situations of extreme poverty and refugees.

This is another supported employment project, which follows the success and impact already obtained by our other social activity – É UM RESTAURANTE.

É UMA MESA will take place in Carnide, in Bairro Padre Cruz, and it is expected that the space may also contribute to dynamize and demystify the neighborhood where it is located.
