About the event
Apart from offering an alternative source for groceries that saves valuable food from going to waste, we find that giving away food invites people into a conversation about our food system. For one, we are not used to seeing imperfect produce in the supermarket, so being exposed to the natural variations in fruits and vegetables, their different stages of ripeness and their deliciousness despite or even because of these reasons, educates us as food consumers. Secondly by making the market free or pay-as-you-feel we are making social and sustainable food choices accessible to people with less financial means. Thirdly laying out the food waste from only 5 stores in one street, helps visualise just how huge the problem is. Finally we are trying to cultivate a space for exchanging cultures, recipes, food conservation methods, sustainable practises and more.
