Voices from event participants – Seeking temporary relief from the exhausting days of the earthquake –
[Image 9:×1108.jpg] ( ) indicates the area where the event participants’ homes are located. ●Mr. Nakanishi (Noto Island)
“I moved to Noto Island a year and a half ago.I was evacuated to Kanazawa for the second time after the recent earthquake, but I had to move from hotel to hotel, and as of today (March 24th), I have already stayed at 5 hotels. This is me.I have to leave at the end of March, but I don’t know where I’ll go next, so I’m overwhelmed with anxiety every day.Thank you for holding an event to help the disaster victims. .”
●Mr. H (Suzu City)
“My company in Suzu has also closed, and I have evacuated to Kanazawa.I’m new to the area and don’t know where restaurants are, so I’m happy to be able to eat out for the first time in a while.I’m thinking of starting over somewhere else in the future, but I’m worried about the money. But it’s a situation where there’s a lot of anxiety.”
●Mr. S (Monzen-cho, Wajima City)
“The upheaval was so bad that my house was completely destroyed. We are in temporary housing, but there are fixed costs, so I’m very worried about the money.”
●The couple who made a reservation for the event first (Suzu City) “My house is completely destroyed, so I want to go back to my hometown, but I can’t. Even though I had just finished repairing the building after the magnitude 6 earthquake in May 2023, something like this happened on New Year’s Day 2024. Now, my heart is broken.” ●Mr. M (Wajima City)
“This is the third hotel I’ve stayed in as a secondary evacuation site, and I’m worried because I’ll have to move again next time.I’m happy because I wanted a place to relax.The drinks and food are delicious.”
●Mr. T (Wajima City)
“I’m in temporary housing, but all fixed expenses are my own, so I’m worried about money.I’m not very good at gathering information on social media, so I went to a soup kitchen for the first time the other day. It was so bad that I couldn’t do the things I used to do. I was really happy because I needed a place to go for a quick drink.” ●“Yoshie Minamiya Shoten” Yoshie Minamiya (Wajima City)
“At this event, I was able to drink alcohol for the first time since the earthquake.I had no time to worry about things related to the earthquake, and I had to spend time cleaning up.I would like to express my gratitude to all the people who have sent me e-mails because they are worried. I haven’t been able to reply yet. I haven’t had many opportunities to get together with people, so I’m happy to have this opportunity.”
Mr. Yoshie Minamitani, who is also the trademark of Wajima Morning Market, has been running a processed seafood shop for three
generations, including father and son. As a result of the earthquake, the warehouse was caught in a crack in the ground, creating a 2m difference in level and causing the building to tilt significantly. Six years ago, we made a large capital investment and ended up with a loan of tens of millions of yen when the disaster struck. They also lost the fish sauce and rice bran pickle barrels that had been passed down from their predecessors.

However, because I don’t want Wajima’s traditional culture to die out, I’m trying to crowdfund with my daughter Miyu (22 years old) in order to rebuild it on Wajima land.

[Love Farm Project] Restaurants and companies in Aichi, Gifu, and Mie aim for “agriculture, welfare, and food collaboration” of “agriculture x welfare x food and drink” – We want to make everyone smile – those who grow, those who make, and those who eat.
[Image 13:×183.jpg] ■What is the Love Farm Project?
[Image 14:×800.jpg] Tatsuya Wakabayashi, Chairman and Project Manager of “Ai Farm Project General Incorporated Association”
“Ai Farm Project General Incorporated Association” (hereinafter referred to as “Ai Farm Project”) is a collaboration between restaurants and companies in Aichi, Gifu, and Mie with the aim of “Agriculture x Welfare x Food Collaboration.” This is the group that raised it. It is jointly operated by Vital Co., Ltd. (Tatsuya Wakabayashi, Representative Director, Tsu City, Mie Prefecture), Chiyoda Real Estate Co., Ltd. (Toshikazu Kondo, Representative Director, Tsushima City, Aichi Prefecture), and Toshiki Kitchen Co., Ltd. (Toshiki Ai, Representative Director, Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture). Masu.
The Love Farm Project aims to realize a society in which no one is left behind, and aims to address the current social issues of people who want to work but are unable to find employment because they are disabled, and the declining number of agricultural workers. In order to solve the problem, restaurants and companies in Aichi, Gifu, and Mie were formed.
In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of facilities, offices, and companies that provide opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in society. Regarding agriculture, efforts to create a market for “people who grow” are expanding through national measures such as “Noufuku (Agriculture and Welfare Collaboration),” but there are not enough places in place to provide agricultural products that have been produced by people with disabilities. That can be said to be an issue. What we can do is to connect the food that people with disabilities have been involved in in any of the processes from production to shipping to the people who make it and the people who eat it, thereby contributing to their consumption.
Currently, 31 restaurants, 4 agricultural organizations/businesses, and 11 companies in Aichi, Gifu, and Mie support the idea of ​​this project and are promoting its activities. Affiliated restaurants that are project members incorporate agricultural products grown with care by people with disabilities into their menus and offer them to customers who visit their stores. We are expanding our circle of support through local production for local consumption, allowing customers to learn about the deliciousness of agricultural products grown with care by people with disabilities. We believe that “A delicious dish can sometimes change the way people think.” We are confident that the diversification of food values ​​will lead to the happiness of society as a whole.
In addition, people with disabilities involved in agriculture will be proud to see the delicious and beautifully prepared produce. This will lead to improved productivity and the quality of agricultural products, and will also directly lead to increased employment and continued employment of people with disabilities. This is expected to increase the wages of people with disabilities, support their independence, and increase the number of new farmers.
[Image 15:×667.jpg] In the Love Farm Project, people with disabilities are involved in any part of the process from production to shipping of agricultural products.
By creating a production cycle of “Agriculture, Welfare and Food Collaboration” in which everyone can contribute to social welfare through food, we aim to create a society where everyone who grows, prepares, and eats smiles, and takes responsibility for
sustainability. In addition to conducting certain business activities, we will provide services centered on contributing to social welfare, promoting industrial development, and human rights initiatives in order to achieve SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).
