In partnership with top chefs in town, San Diego Food System Alliance held a series of Unwasted Food pop-up dinners in 2016. In an effort to build awareness on food waste, local chefs and partner restaurants prepared gourmet dishes from ignored or un-coveted food that would otherwise go to waste.

In 2016, San Diego Food System Alliance organized 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 benefitted 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
