#happyplateSG chefs will be creating a selection of tasty complimentary food samples to highlight ways to reduce food waste at home, at the Gillman Barracks Farmers’ Market on Saturday 19 November 2016.
The team of chefs is supporting this year’s #happyplateSG community initiative aimed at raising food waste awareness while helping beneficiary partner, the Food Bank Singapore, keep their Fresh Food Truck on the road. With 46% of food produce never making it from farm to fork, for reasons including it is discoloured or misshapen, combined 1 in 4 Singaporeans stating they would never eat imperfect-looking food, the need to change food waste behaviour is crucial. That’s why this year’s #UglyIsTheNewGood theme encourages the public to embrace the ugly and not throw away or avoid imperfect-looking ingredients. At Gillman Barracks Farmers’ Market, the #happyplateSG chefs will show you how – with delicious results!
To support the #happyplateSG community initiative post a picture of less than perfect-looking food on Instagram or Facebook and hashtag #UglyIsTheNewGood #happyplateSG. For every 8 hashtags shared, Electrolux will fund The Food Bank Singapore’s Fresh Food Truck for one day. Help us to keep the truck on the road for a year and feed thousands of families in need across Singapore.
Also attending the Farmers’ Market will be Woodlands Sourdough, Sea Farmers at Ubin, Ah Hua Kelong, Jixiang Confectionery, Red Baron and many more. It’s free entry from 2pm – 6pm.
