ABOUT

Slow Food is a global grassroots organization that envisions a world in which all people can access and enjoy food that is good for them, good for those who grow it and good for the planet. Slow Food involves over a million activists, chefs, experts, youth, farmers, fishers and academics in over 160 countries.

Slow Food Youth Network (SFYN) unites groups of active young Slow Food members from all over the globe into one international network, currently in over 80 countries. The local groups independently create original and engaging events aimed at raising awareness about food issues and providing means to take action. The SFYN Global office promotes cooperation between the local groups, facilitates the exchange of knowledge and ideas, and campaigns internationally. Thus combining the powers of young food activists from all over the world!

The concept of a Disco Soup started years ago in Berlin as Schnippeldisko, a ‘protest soup’ against food waste that fed 8,000 people. Since then, Disco Soups started to spread across the world as a fun, positive way to bring the food waste crisis into focus.

World Disco Soup Day is the annual international event in which hundreds of Disco Soups take place simultaneously, held on the final Saturday in April. Here, volunteers collect, chop and cook any food that would otherwise go to waste, then dance to the beat and dish it out for free at public events.
