The only club where you are obliged to bring a knife! In the war against food waste, Gather discarded vegetables from markets, homes, schools and turn them into ‘protest soup to get attention against Food Waste. Cut the vegetables into small pieces and make a lovely soup out of it! Enjoy together with music as we fight against Food Waste.
Slow Food Youth Network invites you to join the first World Disco Soup Day on April 29th 2017 to fight food waste!
While parts of the world population suffer from hunger, one third of the food intended for human consumption is being thrown away every year. 1.3 billion of tons of food is being fed to bins. At the same time, according to FAO, we only produce enough food to supply the world’s growing population until 2050. It’s clear we have a huge challenge in front of us.
At Slow Food’s Terra Madre 2016 we got together with our international network of food producers, activists, students and others food professionals and decided to organize the first World Disco Soup Day! On April 29th we call for attention and action to stop global food waste, by organizing one of the most well known projects of the Slow Food Youth Network: Disco Soup. This time we want to address the problem of food waste not only on local/regional scale, this time we’re going global!
We all care about this huge problem and it’s time we give it the attention it deserves. That’s why we want to invite you and everybody within the Slow Food Youth Network to start your own Disco Soup-event on April 29th. Join us and fill bellies instead of bins!
