On the occasion of World food day, FoodBlessed and Slow Food Beirut are hosting the first Disco Soup in Lebanon.
You’re invited to a free party to chop, peel and prepare surplus fruit and vegetables to the sound of dance music.
All with fresh ingredients that would have otherwise been gone to waste.
The aim of the event is to raise awareness of the unimaginable levels of food waste globally and to catalyse action by promoting the delicious solutions to food waste.
Since the beginning of 2012, the Disco Soup anti-food waste phenomenon has spread in Holland, Belgium, Canada, Colombia and South Korea, serving thousands of meals to the sound of dance music, sparking creativity, boldness and solidarity amongst people of all origins, ages and social backgrounds.’ Now its Lebanon’s turn to join these countries ! :)

Disco Soup is funky. Disco Soup is not just funky but designed to convey a serious message about food, and more importantly food waste. We collect food that would have been thrown away and scrub it, peel it, chop it and turn it into a delicious soup all to music, jiggling while we cook !
The purpose of our Disco Soup is to highlight these issues. We’d love for everyone to think about how they can reduce the amount of food that is wasted, whether they are buyers, retailers or producers. Food waste just doesn’t make sense : economically, morally or environmentally. We’d love to talk to retailers, big and small, and producers about how planning for zero waste would benefit them too.
Through our Disco Soup we would like to start the process of change… thinking about how we, as consumers, can reduce our waste. We have a number of suggestions for students and families on how they can reduce their food waste and make a contribution to our aim of zero waste
