2 Events: Free lunch & Public lecture on Food Waste

POSTER_Food waste eventsFirst Event

Organised by the Centre for Sustainable Development & Food Security (CSD&FS) of Wageningen UR and a team of enthusiastic volunteers:
TURNING FOOD FOR BINS INTO FOOD FOR KINGS
Did you know that more than one third of the global food supply is wasted between the farm and the mouth? Imagine, if this food was eaten, nobody would be hungry in the world! After New York, Paris and London, it is now time for the agrifood-city of Wageningen to take action on this pressing issue!
On 29 September 2013, between 12.30 and 16.00, Wageningen University Campus is hosting an event on food waste in front of the Orion building. There will be a warm, FREE LUNCH for 500 people, made from food that would normally be wasted! Mind you, a carrot that would not win a beauty contest is still nutritious and delicious to eat.
At the event, you will also get tips on how to avoid food waste. Also, we would like to hear your ideas on how food can be stored to keep its freshness longer, either with or without a fridge – send us an email to timo.eckhardt@wur.nl before 29 September. We will bundle all the tips and methods and make them available to everyone.
