What better way to teach people how to not waste food than to throw a party and give them all free food?
In case you haven't already heard, tonight Food Shift, a local group that wants to tech us how to stop wasting food, is hosting a silent disco party, where you can dance, eat, and learn how to stop ordering more food than you can consume. The group is asking for a $3 donation, all of which will go toward education and other resources to fight food waste and hunger.
According to Food Shift, 50 percent of all food produced in the United States is wasted, which squanders water, depletes soil, wastes fossil fuels, and increases our carbon footprint.
Some 49 million Americans still struggle to put food on the table, and one out of every four children are hungry. "if just 20 percent of the wasted food were captured, it would be enough to feed 25 million Americans," Food Shift claims.
Tonight's shindig will start at 7 at the RallyPad, locate at 144 Second St. Oh, and please bring your own plates and cups -- the last thing this party needs is more waste.
