Interested in ending food waste? Join us for Austin’s first ever Disco Soup
on April 29 from 10AM-1PM at the SFC Downtown Farmers’ Market. Started by the Slow Food Youth Network, Disco Soup is a food waste awareness event, set to music, where undesirable and expired food from farms and groceries is recovered and made into hundreds of free meals for the public. Here
are examples of Disco Soup events in France and England – they’re always very fun and funky. Austin’s Disco Soup will be a part of World Disco Soup Day, the largest food waste awareness event in the world; we will be one of a hundred Disco Soups happening around the world on April 29. Join the global fight to stop food waste!
