2010 – Tavolata

Coming together once a week to cook, eat and chat enhances people’s everyday lives. But not everyone is able to do so; old people especially are often alone and miss out on regular contact with their peers. This is what Tavolata, the new Migros Culture Percentage project, sets out to tackle in 2010. Tavolata means helping people to help themselves: the elderly organise get-togethers in their neighbourhood at which they get to know one another better over a meal they prepare themselves. Tavolata’s aim is to create a familiar environment for people of the same age.
