What’s Hope Feast you ask?
Farming Hope is hosting local Chefs like Interim Culinary Director Michelle Minori & chefs from Prubechu, Kitiya, Minnie Bells, International Smoke, and others to participate in the inaugural ‘Eat Your Scraps’ competition. Chefs will receive a mystery box of food scraps that they must incorporate into their dishes for the event. Apprentices, or culinary trainees in Farming Hope’s job training program, will be cooking alongside guest chefs during Hope Feast, learning and growing from the best in the business. Guests to the event will vote on their favorite and a winner will be crowned.
Food waste occurs at every level of the food system, and Farming Hope works on the supply side to rescue food that is imperfect, too close to the “best buy” date to sell, or has more supply than demand. Rather than allowing this product to go to compost or landfill, Farming Hope collects it from producers and puts it to use in our free community meals. The Eat Your Scraps competition aims to highlight creative and delicious ways to reduce food waste.
Ticket purchases go directly towards supporting food justice programs to reduce food waste, increase nutritious food access for unhoused families, and culinary job training.
