Dumpsterdive Dinner

 

  • Roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year (+-1.3 billion tonnes) gets lost or wasted.

The impact of this is not just financial. Environmentally, food waste leads to wasteful use of chemicals such as fertilizers and pesticides; more fuel used for transportation; and more rotting food, creating more methane – one of the most harmful greenhouse gases that contributes to climate change.

 

For this reason we decided to prove good food is up for grabs! We checked the dumpsters at farmers markets, added some greens we picked from the side of the road, an we even got hold of one of the geese they shoot at our national airport, that used to go to waste.

 

Let’s save the world one tasty meal at a time!
