CANCELLED: Everybody Eats at Fringe Town
Auckland's pay-as-you-feel dining concept is aiming to serve up 1000 delicious chef-prepared meals.
Food rescue organisation Everybody Eats has been feeding bellies instead of bins since June 2017. As part of its mission to combat food waste and food poverty, the organisation now hosts two pay-as-you-feel restaurants in Auckland, including a permanent location which opened its doors last year.
The organisation was started by Nick Loosley after he was exposed to the enormous amount of food waste while undertaking research for his Master's Degree in Green Economics. Together with volunteer chefs from top restaurants each week he feeds around 250 people restaurant quality, three-course meals from food that would otherwise go to waste. The customers of Everybody Eats can pay whatever they like, from nothing at all to sizeable donations.
The not-for-profit dining concept is now heading to the inner city to serve delicious chef-prepared meals. As part of Auckland Live's Fringe Town, Everybody Eats is aiming to pumping out 1000 restaurant-quality three-course meals inside Auckland Town Hall's Great Hall on Sunday, 21 February. First-class chefs Michael Meredith (Mr Morris) and Tom Hishon (Orphans Kitchen, Kingi) will be at the helm of the kitchen serving up meals made almost entirely from rescued food.
They're served on a pay-as-you-feel basis. Book your place here.
