Preston’s first Disco Soup is coming to Avenham Park.Advertisement
The festival is hosted by Lancashire and Region Dietary Education Resource and includes a chef-cooked meal to promote a fight against food waste.
The event forms part of The Mystery Tea House’s ‘The 4 Elements of Summer’ as local chefs cook and present a meal made entirely from food which would otherwise be thrown away.
The Disco Soup cooking party, and the event to run alongside, is designed to show the uses of leftovers and hopes to participate in the bid to stamp out unnecessary waste and food poverty.
The meal will be accompanied with music and art activities for the whole family.
An estimated 15 million tonnes of food is wasted in Britain every year “from plough to plate” and so the public is encouraged to show support and think twice before throwing out leftovers.
Chef, food activist and writer, Gill Watson and Preston City Council’s Community Nutrition Worker, Alison Watts are currently on the bill with more local chefs encouraged to sign up and share recipes to combat food waste within the home.
Donations as you see fit are welcomed for the meal which will take place on Sunday August 23 at Avenham Park between 12pm and 6pm.
