Encore Dinner Series

encoreiconOur Encore Dinner Series pop up dinners offer a fun, engaging, and delicious way to learn about food waste and easy at-home solutions while enjoying a fabulous meal.

Each dinner is hosted by a chef, typically from a local restaurant. Because we bring in rescued food the week of the event to incorporate into the meal, there is an element of mystery and uniqueness to the creations the chefs dream up.

In the past we’ve had a fish selection topped with a delectable red pepper sauce using fresh bell peppers rescued from a food distributor. We’ve had pillowy sausage-stuffed ravioli handmade with extra sausage rescued from our caterer. Each dinner is crafted to be original and one of a kind, but some creations have been such a hit they’re later incorporated into the chefs’ restaurants!

During the dinner you will mix and mingle with other guests and learn about the impact of food waste on the local community and environment, and how you can make simple changes at home to make a collective big impact.

Our next dinner on Thursday, September 26th, is now fully booked. Please contact us about wait list accomodations.
