Disco Soup is a Slow Food Youth Network project. 2017 marks the first year that this event is going global, with the point being to bring attention to 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.
No tickets are required for this event, but we do ask you to RSVP (coming very soon).
