Get down to Perth Arena for a unique pop up lunch event on Friday 29 August and find some of Perth’s top chefs cooking up a storm using food rescued by local organisation Food Rescue. Between 12noon and 2.00pm, four chefs will be creating a range of delicious take away lunches for Perth’s hungry CBD workers.
Russell Blaikie from Must Winebar, Don Hancey WA Food Ambassador, Vince Garreffa from Mondo Meats and Sophie Budd from Taste Budds Cooking Studio will all be drawing the crowds, and sharing their culinary skills by making four different, delicious treats for you to choose between – all while supporting an amazing organisation.
“As a chef it upsets me to see perfectly usable fresh food being discarded as landfill, when it could be put to good use in meals for people that may have suffered hardships in life. Food Rescue provides that fresh-food conduit to people who are in need of nutritious, fresh produce,” said Russell Blaikie.
“When I was asked to come on board, I felt compelled to help out in any way I could; in doing so I found a wonderful group of volunteers who make the organisation viable, they are the quiet heroes of Food Rescue, and it is deeply satisfying and humbling to lend a hand.”
