Federica Marra won the 2012 Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition Young Earth Solutions competition with the project “Manna From Our Roofs.” Her innovative concept sought to engage young people across OECD countries in an international network of activities combining education, communication, and business. In the project, participants would actively take part in cultivation, preservation, cooking, and sale of their own urban food products. Marra’s work has been published in BCFN’s quarterly magazine. She holds a B.S. in Language and Culture Mediation and a M.S. in Japanese Studies from Leiden University. She wrote her final dissertation on the fight against food loss and food waste in Japan, analyzing the relevance of food security issues with regard to current initiatives.
