|Telemadre is a social exchange
model that connects unemployed mothers with people who would like to eat home-cooked
meals but have neither the time nor the skills necessary to cook.
Through a financial arrangement between the parties and periodic deliveries,
the mothers provide their telechildren with ready-cooked meals. A healthy diet
based on fish and meat, vegetables, legumes, fruit and dairy products.
The telemadre keeps in touch with each new telechild, concerning herself with
the state of their fridge, their tastes and their needs. Once in a while, she
even sends homemade desserts, to spoil them just enough.
