Disco Scouse (A Twist on Disco Soup)
21 mars 2015 • 11:00 - 14:00
Dust off your dancing shoes and hip-hop up to the plate – Disco-Scouse is where it’s at ! A big, free, community event focusing on food waste in a fun and accessible way ! Join loads of brilliant volunteer cooks to transform ingredients that would have otherwise gone to landfill, in to a big tasty communal lunch of tasty veggie scouse, whilst having a cool disco boogie to a live dj soundtrack blasted by funky food DJs ! Get involved !
Disco-Scouse is a twist on Disco-Soupe – an international grassroots movement that catalyses action on food waste and works to “fill bellies, not bins”. With its origins in Germany, then France and now active in New York, Disco-Soupe’s simple ethos is to bring attention to food waste by creating a big, free lunch out of food that would otherwise be discarded, whilst dancing !

Event sponsored by Awesome Liverpool, Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority and Love Food, Hate Waste.
Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority is responsible for recycling, treating and disposing of just over 650,000 tonnes of household waste from the residents of Merseyside. More than 100,000 tonnes of this waste is food and drink (28 % of all waste put in bins). Food and drink is disposed of for a number of reasons. There is a tendency for people to prepare, cook and serve too much in the first place, we tend not to use what we buy before it goes off or we are tempted by the ‘buy one get one free’ offers and end up throwing any surplus away because the perception is that it cost nothing.
Another reason is that people throw away food and drink is the confusion over dates such as ‘best before’, ‘sell by’, and ‘use by’. As a result, the average family ends up throwing about £60 worth of food every month – that’s more than £700 a year. As a service provider, it is in our interest, to manage waste effectively, raise awareness and influence behaviour so that we don’t have to deal with unwanted waste in all its forms in the first place. Being more mindful before we buy or throw things away will help both us and the residents of Merseyside to save money and at the same time, protect the environment. www.merseysidewda.gov.uk
