Enjoy a bespoke zero-waste three course lunch while learning about food sustainability, food security and the future of our food systems.

As our hospitality industry recovers from the COVID-19 health crisis, how can we shape a food system that is good for the environment, offers food security and nutrition for all, while minimising waste?

In this special dining event, participants will enjoy a curated menu designed to minimise food waste. The sustainable and seasonal spread will reflect host-restaurant Cumulus’s approach to cooking.

From chefs and venue owners, to growers and consumers, everyone has a role to play in creating a better food future.
