Fill bellies instead of bins!
Soup and disco in one event? Interesting? You bet! LOL
Just what is Disco Soup Day?
Well, it’s a pop-up disco party where you eat and dance to FIGHT FOOD WASTE!
Yes, that’s right. On Saturday, April 28, 2018, the links of the global Slow Food network from Uganda, Brazil to Netherlands, will join forces to collect food that would have otherwise been thrown into the bin; cutting and chopping with gusto, and cooking on a Protest Soup, as we fight food waste with a dance!
This year, Slow Food Manila, the Slow Food Youth, Enderun Colleges, Chefs, the Department of Agriculture, and volunteers (that includes you!) will collect, wash, clean, cut, and cook leftover food. We bring together students, teachers, children, seniors, chefs, the government and food activists in a gastronomic disco, to raise awareness and battle against food waste. We will also have DJs, singers, poets, artists, and an outdoor movie!
It’s going to be a big fun party for a cause actually!
But you can help prepare and hold the party as well. How? May we ask for your ugly vegetables, breads, or artisanal goods?
Aside from being there to chop to the beat, you can bring your food waste, any produce you might have otherwise thrown or sent to the dumpster. So, if you’d like to give us your food waste, please let us know where we can collect and who to get the bounty from on April 27, 2018. If you would rather send it to us on that day, please let us know. Kindly SMS to 0998-5999770 the following details:
Pick Up Where (or indicate if Dropping Off)
Who Do We Thank?
The World Disco Soup Party will be at the Atrium of Enderun Colleges from 4:00PM to until you’re all fed up.
You are welcome to chop or even if you just want to know more about our current food system, and find ways to help change it.
And oh, bring cutlery (BYO plates, utensils, and cups). Should you wish to chop to the beat, don’t forget to bring knives, peelers, graters, and your dancing shoes!
Please save the date and join us!
