2015 Disco Soup
Our recent Disco Soup event collected would-be wasted food and redistributed it to those in need.
Not your average dinner party, a Disco Soup brought together guests for a night of hands-on food preparation followed by good food, music, and company. The twist is that the produce on hand would have been destined for landfill. Ingredients for cooking were donated by Food for Free — a nonprofit that collects would-be wasted food and redistributes it to those in need. In keeping with Food for Free's mission, Disco Soup donated the food prepared at the event.
2014 Tour de Farms
Slow Food Boston, in partnership with the Culinary Guild of New England, welcomed the summer season of bountiful farming with our Tour de Farms in S. Dartmouth and Westport, along the picturesque south Massachusetts coast.
Everyone biked a 12 mile loop over flat roads, visiting three neighboring food producers and picnicked on an organic farm, experiencing a taste of local farm products in the beautiful landscape in which they are grown and produced, followed by a visit to a vineyard and local brewery.
Tour de Farms riders were specially welcomed onto each farm, hearing directly from the owners and operators about the history of their farms, the products they offer and were able to sample their good, clean, and fair food, which included organic herbs, vegetables, beef, and locally produced beer and wine.
