Sunday, July 26 at 9:30am – 12:00pm
Hollywood Farmers’ Market
1600 Ivar Ave, Los Angeles, California 90028
Join chef Bruce Kalman (Union, Pasadena), graphic artist Pou Dimitrijevich, Food Forward and A Sustainable Kitchen at the Hollywood Farmers Market, Sunday July 26 as we take on the challenging theme FOOD WASTE/Starve the Landfills.
-Globally, from field to table, nearly a third of all food is wasted. In the U.S. its as much as 40%.
-Most of the wasted food ends up in landfills, rotting and creating methane, a potent greenhouse gas.
-Take note Dry California, nearly 25% of all fresh water consumed annually in the U.S. is associated with food waste.
-Most of the wasted food could feed people.
Although Food Waste is a massive global problem it is solvable. From pickling and preserving, composting, volunteering, to embracing ‘ugly fruit and veg’ and leftovers, there are so many simple things we can all do to help.
Chef Kalman, a sustainability advocate, and artist Pou have collaborated on a “Garbagiere” Pickle and collectable recipe card with the goal of inspiring you to turn your awareness into action. They will be handing out ‘tastes’ and the cards at the Hollywood Farmer’ Market and will be joined by Food Forward, who will share more ways you can help and great volunteering opportunities.
Come meet the chef, artist and Food Forward. Learn what you can do to help end Food Waste.
This event is free and open to the public.
