We were honoured to be a part of the Locavored Edition Series event at Fed Square for Fair Food Week, it’s not every day you get the opportunity to be in a room full of such inspiring people!
We talked food waste, farming and food and what we can all do to make a difference. As Costa put it, the night was all about looking at ways we could “focus our ideas to make a change”.
We talked about our real heroes, the farmers, and what we can do to encourage the average consumer (who thinks the only way to buy corn is wrapped in plastic on a black polystyrene tray) to better support their local farmers. So at the end or the night the message was to “pass it on”, pass on the knowledge and understanding of everyone in the room to friends family and loved ones, and encourage them to pass it on too.
All in all, the night was an empowering collaboration of inspiring people and I’m sure we weren’t the only ones who left feeling like we could change the world!
Until next time fellow fair foodies!
