On the chilly night of 26th of April, Hidden Harvest spiced things up with the refreshingly entertaining ‘Doco & Dahl’ night. Held at newly opened Moving Mountains Gallery in Wollongong, the night featured delicious upcycled curries, desserts and alcoholic refreshments. After everyone’s bellies were full, Hidden Harvest played two short films before diving into the main film of the night, ‘Just Eat It’. The film follows a couple’s journey of living entirely off of food waste for six months and examines the way we grow, cultivate and purchase our food, and how the food we throw away is having a devastating effect on the Earth. Afterwards, the Hidden Harvest team facilitated a lively interactive discussion about what guests can do to turn their own homes into #MoreTasteLessWaste havens.
Over 126 people attended ‘Doco & Dahl’ night, which was the third event of Hidden Harvest’s ‘More Taste, Less Waste’ campaign, which aims to collectively rescue 1500 kilograms of food from being wasted. So far, the team has saved 420 kilograms of food which has been served at the events, and received pledges from 241 committed guests to save their share.
