The ever-increasing acceptance by restaurants of our Solidarity Restaurant project, the increase in the cities involved and the support of consumers who see the initiative as an opportunity to do good, is for us a source of pride and a lever to do more and more. In 2018 at Christmas we delivered over 700 meals and we are counting on doing the same this year, adding a new city with Naples, "he says. Daniele Contini, Country Manager of Just Eat in Italy.
