Re-plated: Upcycle Dining

“Re-plated” was a dinner we organized to raise awareness for food waste, as well as money for the Farm 2 Food Bank, a charity that distributes surplus farm produce to the food bank. Food Connections organized an elegant evening of storytelling and gourmet “upcycled” dining by serving a five-course meal made from rescued food, all of which were gleaned from the farms in partnership with Farm 2 Food Bank.

The evening included special guests Jen Rustemeyer (award winning filmmaker of “Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story”) & Kayla Feenstra (Founder of Farm to Food Bank). The evening raised money for the Farm 2 Food Bank.
