Food Waste Extravaganza! (Disco is coming…)


Hate Waste?   Love food? Love Music? Love communal cooking?

Something REALLY Exciting is happening on 21st November:

Abundance Oxford & Co’s FOODISCO!


Twitter:  #FOODISCO, #FOODISCOxford, #AbundanceOxford

 On Thursday 21st we’re hoping to bring food that would otherwise go to waste to the masses, but in a different way than has ever been done before in Oxford… or indeed, in the whole of the UK… !

Armed with peelers, chopping boards, an apple press, a pedal-powered smoothie maker and soup-ladles too – we’ll be making and serving free food in the city centre – all to LIVE upbeat music: FOODISCO!          You are all invited to join us, chop with us, press with us & eat with us!

If you have more than 5 minutes to spare on your lunch-break then we’d love you to come join us and help cooking! Skip the time it takes you to make your lunch at home and come help make and eat lunch with hundreds throughout the day in the city centre! We’ll have aprons and all the tools you need, all ages are welcome and those that are too young to use knives can help us by using our apple machine (genius machine) or by pedalling a smoothie!  We want as many people as possible to join in the fun!

 You can pop by during your lunch break and join in and stay as long as or little as you want…. & of course… You Will Be Fed! (for free!) There is such a thing as A FREE LUNCH!

If you’re still not convinced, this is what food waste hero, author of Waste: Uncovering the Global Food Scandal and founder of Feeding5k, Tristram Stuart had to say about it:

“Disco Food Waste Revolution kicks off in the UK! Let me tell you, this will be the first of many (Bath Disco Soup follows two days later). So: if you’re anywhere near Oxford, and you’re not going to The Pig Idea Feast in Trafalgar Square, and you’re the kind of person that likes to look back in a couple of years and say “yeah, I was at the first one in the UK…now they’re everywhere!” then you’d better head on down to the Foodisco in Bonn Square! Be there, or be Onion!”

Please write the date in your diary now (yes, right now!) so you can remind yourself to pop by and eat with us, chop a carrot or two and scrat an apple ready for pressing into the tastiest, fresh, nothing added and nothing taken away, apple juice you might have ever tasted! DELICIOUS, FREE & COMMUNITY EATING!

DISCO IS COMING… BYOS ! (Bring Your Own Spoon!)

 Abundant Food-Rescuing Love,
