A MEAL made entirely from food waste is a festival highlight at the 11th Waterford Harvest Festival, which takes place September 6th to 8th.
The Wasted Supper Club, held at GROW HQ, the home of not-for-profit social enterprise GIY, will highlight the one million tonnes of food wasted every year in Ireland. This year’s programme of more than 70 free and ticketed events features cooking demos, grow-it-yourself workshops, local food markets, child-friendly events and more, all taking place across Ireland’s oldest city.
Commenting on the launch of the programme, Festival Director Tommie Ryan said:
“At Waterford Harvest Festival, we are passionate about sustainably sourced food and reducing food waste. We are very excited to see GROW HQ head chef JB Dubois, along with Chefs’ Manifesto ambassador Conor Spacey (Food Space) host a zero waste meal for 50 lucky diners to launch GROW HQ as the Irish hub for Chefs’ Manifesto – a global community of chefs.”
