Re:Source – A Series of Unwasted Food Pop-Up Dinners
May 10 @ 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Join the San Diego Food System Alliance for the first in a series of Unwasted Food pop-up dinners where local chefs and partner restaurants will prepare dishes from ignored or un-coveted food that would otherwise go to waste.

The San Diego Food System Alliance is launching Re:Source, a series of Unwasted Food pop-up dinners where celebrity chefs will use creativity to transform ignored or un-coveted food that would otherwise become ‘waste.’ This pop-up series is inspired by successful initiatives in other cities.

A portion of the proceeds benefits the San Diego Food System Alliance in its mission to build a healthy, equitable, and sustainable food system in San Diego County.

Re:Source aims to…

  • Raise awareness of the staggering volume of food that is wasted
  • Inspire new applications for the overlooked byproducts of our food system
  • Redefine food waste as an important resource

April 6th: The Red Door
May 10th: The Land & Water Co
