We would also like to recognize our amazing partners, Ashley Street Teaching Kitchen and theEast Boston Food Policy Council - this event would not have been made possible without their generosity and expertise. A huge thank you to our vendors who provided a delicious meal for us, East Boston Oysters for their beautiful, fresh oysters, La Sanghita for providing equally delicious vegetarian options, Boostrap Compost and Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic for all their support, and last but not least, Food For Free, who donated the produce for our cause. Also want to give a big shout out to DJ Salim Akram (of Bad Rabbits) and DJ Gary Carlow for providing great music for our disco!
Disco Soup was an idea to raise awareness on how much food in our global agricultural system goes to waste every year, particularly misshapen produce commonly discarded for not meeting cosmetic standards of food distributors. We encourage you to continue supporting food waste initiatives by "eating ugly" and play an active role in preventing food waste in your community.
