Food Waste Party Planned in San Francisco

Posted By on Fri, Apr 27, 2012 at 7:56 AM


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.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
