Event:
You DO Make Friends with Salad
Don't go booking your ticket to Spain just yet, because Adelaide is bringing a little bit of the Espanol to you. Get ready for a crazy day of tomato throwing at the Wayville Showgrounds, this coming February.

Have you ever dreamed of being part of the La Tomatina Festival? If you're not sure what the "La Tomatina Festival" is, it's basically a day filled with Spaniards and travellers manically throwing tomatoes for the fun of it through the alley ways of Spain. Sounds pretty fun right? Well you can definitely cross it off your bucket list without needing to travel over 20 hours. This exciting and epic tomato battle is definitely an event to note in your schedule. You don't want to miss it!

Imagine the thrill and hype of ditching tomatoes at a stranger or friend. Yeah, I know, it sounds too good to be true.
It'll almost resemble a battle scene from Game of Thrones, minus the swords and dragons; A sea of people throwing juicy tomatoes to their hearts' content.

However, the reason for this Tomato Battle is to raise funds for feedONE and to promote awareness for world hunger. It's a known fact that this world-wide issue is relevant today. Many people are not as fortunate as others, and go without food or the necessities that are so readily available to us. Food is expensive, and as a society that is diverse economically, starvation and hunger are unfortunately becoming increasingly common.

You wouldn't believe the copious amounts of edible food that go to waste daily, particularly in supermarkets. By hosting this event, feedONE intends to use these overly ripened tomatoes to make a positive statement about world hunger and food waste. Instead of throwing them out they'll be put to use and given a purpose.

The day will be made even better with live acts of entertainment to kick off before the big battle, as well as a costume contest, bar service and more. Tickets are currently $34.99 for early bird, and then increase to $54.99 at full price. Now's the time to purchase your ticket and help make an impact on the lives that have been affected by hunger.
