A Piece of Lemon Cake started in December 2019 as a side project of our founder's, Laura Lorenzo. Its goal was to reduce food waste in cities, by making sure that the fruits grown in private gardens didn't rot on the ground but was collected, transformed and sold using circular economy business models. Then COVID-19 came along.
As challenging as the lockdown was, it also gave us the opportunity to press the "pause button" and figure out how A Piece of Lemon Cake could have a bigger impact. As a result, the scope evolved from reducing food waste one backyard at a time, to helping cities become carbon neutral with a simple and scalable model, one tiny forest at a time.
A Piece of Lemon Cake will kick off early next year with two pilot projects in Lisbon. Additionally, we are already in conversations with other institutions to implement our approach in other cities in Portugal and across Europe.
The methodology developed by A Piece of Lemon Cake pivots around four main pillars
To implement its methodology A Piece of Lemon Cake partners with the following key stakeholders
City Halls & Parishes
