In the "civic heart" of Sydney, known as Martin Place, the pedestrian mall will play host to Oz Harvest's event of Think.Eat.Save this July.
On Monday the 24th of July, all are invited to this FREE event that aims to improve our knowledge and relationship with food and how we can minimise our food waste - in turn saving you a lot of money whilst still keeping you full!
From Oz Harvest's research, an estimated 4 million tonnes of food is wasted by Australians every year. Think of that as 1 in 5 bags of the groceries you buy will end up in the bin as wastage.
Oz Harvest is an amazing organisation that not only educates the public on how to reduce this issue but also is the only group in Australia for collecting quality excess food and delivering it to Australians nationwide that are in tough times.
The event won't just be an informational overhaul, but also practical with Martin Place transforming into a marketplace of fresh produce for you to peruse and take home with you. There will be tasty samples of food for you to enjoy on the house thanks to some of Australia's most famous chefs making an appearance such as Neil Perry & Daniel Pepperell as well.
There will also be cooking demonstrations with Justine Schofield & Jessica Sepel - why not learn a few cooking tips whilst sampling fresh produce! Their website is proof you can create food out of what we think of waste. An A-Z guide exists on their website showing you ways to be more conscious of your food purchases and how to put them to good use - most of this information will be displayed to you on the day!
The Think Eat Save campaign's overall goal is to help you save precious food, time and money that goes into every ordinary Aussie's weekly food shop!
The event will run from 11:30am until 2pm on the 24th July. This event in Sydney, as mentioned before, will be held at Martin Place. But there are also other pop-ups nationally if you're reading this but in a different state. For more details on other locations, head to the Oz Harvest website!
