In close collaboration with local farmers, wholesalers, grocery shops, bakery, and our amazing team of passionate volunteers, we rescue roughly 100kg of perfectly edible food from going to waste each week (which saves about 190kg of CO2 emitted).
These usually ignored, overlooked or surplus (by-) products of our food system fuel for all of our activities, including:
Each first Wednesday of the Month, we host a community dinner that is catered almost entirely out of produce that would have otherwise gone to waste.
Our resourceful and creative chef will whip up three courses of produce-saving, taste-bud-tantalising delights!
Come down, help us munch through 20kg of rescued produce to directly avoid 38kg of CO2 emissions being released into our atmosphere and consider how we can tackle this issue! Often accompanied with some sweet tunes by a local artist.
Important Info // We cater on a first come, first serve basis with the doors open from 6pm. Contribute-what -you-can, we suggest $20-40 as an investment in the food waste revolution. Cash Only | BYO | Mostly plant based. Society City is a zero waste venue, so please take all bottles with you at the end of the night.
Are you looking for a delicious team building exercise that makes a difference? Then Cook Off & Feast is for you!
We will be challenging your team, colleagues or group of mates to transform 20kg of rescued food into a shared feast.
This is a unique opportunity to see, feel and taste how delicious the ignored, overlooked and surplus by-products of our food system can be. Along the way you will learn the tools and forks to tackle food waste and shape a more sustainable food future!
Important Info // 3 hour workshop that includes a shared lunch of dinner. Option to BYO. Mostly plant based, with the option for GF and vegan.
Can be held at Hidden Harvest, for up to 12 participants, or hosted at your own venue, for up to 28 participants if space allows.
This workshop provides the audience with the opportunity for individual 5-minute “date” with one of the Hidden Harvest educators for all of their food waste Q’s, whilst making their own Quick pickle from common food scraps (e.g. peels, stems, wonky veg).
Participants walk away with a jar of pickles, a quick pickle recipe and our food waste killer tip guide to support them on their journey to serve up a more sustainable future.
