World Disco Soup Day
This year the Slow Food Youth Network has decided to organize the first Global Disco Soup Day. While in some parts of the world people suffer from hunger, one third of the food intended for human consumption is being thrown away – that’s 1.3 billion of tons of food in the bin every year. It’s clear we have a huge challenge ahead of us. Time for action!
We are inviting everyone from the Slow Food Youth Network and beyond to start their own Disco Soup event on April 29th 2017. Join us and fill bellies instead of bins!
