An interactive event where guests will experience the creativity of seeing food “waste” transformed into art and culinary delicacies.

About this Event

Celebrate Earth Day with local chefs and artists who will use their medium to highlight the possibilities of #NotWasted food. Food waste is a complex challenge that affects all of us on a day-to-day basis.

The statistics are especially staggering in the United States. Americans throw away 40% of their food—upward of 400 pounds per person per year. This, while 42 million Americans report that they don’t have enough to eat*.

Yet with creativity and collaboration we can move the needle on this issue through events like #NotWasted. We will bring together different facets of the equation for an engaging evening of tasty bites, provocative art pieces and informative discussions. All of this to raise awareness about an important topic. We are proud to donate 100% of the proceeds to The Capital Area Food Bank.

The evening will include:
