ICONIC LONDON VENUES ROCKED BY FOOD WASTE REVOLUTION
This Summer, Feedback brought the Disco Soup Revolution to two amazing venues: The V&A Museum and the Skip Garden in Kings Cross.
On Friday 26th August, Feedback delivered possibly the grandest Disco Soup to date at the V&A Museum. As a part of the V&A’s Friday Late series, Feedback took over the Raphael Gallery and saved around 750kg of food from landfill, feeding nearly 1000 people in the process. Our handful of wonderful chefs concocted a feast of raw treats from food waste, including produce from 3 recent gleaning days. Thanks to a great collaboration between Feedback, FoodCycle and Plan Zheroes, we were able to fill the room to bursting with dancing, feasting and other champions of the movement to spread the word about our fight against food waste to many people unfamiliar with our work.
On Sunday 18th September, over 200 keen beans enjoyed an amazing afternoon of food waste fighting activities at our Disco Soup at the Skip Garden, part of Urban Food Fortnight.
While the amazing chefs from the Skip Garden made incredible pizzas and a huge dish for everyone to enjoy, we gave FoodCycle, our partners in the From Farm to Fork project the opportunity to show us what they do best—improvising amazing meals from food surplus.
Everywhere you turned, somebody was doing something amazing with waste, whether it was teaching kids how to upcycle old bike tyres into jewellery, sharing sauerkraut making skills, shaking up espresso martinis from surplus coffee or serving Toast ale, our award winning beer made from surplus bread.
Why not run your own Disco Soup or other food waste event? We have put together a handy video here.
