(1) Disco Soup in NYC: Friday 20 September, 5-9pm, Super Pier (15th Street and Westside Highway), Free party to chop, peel and prepare surplus fruit and vegetables to the sound of dance music. All with fresh ingredients that would have otherwise been wasted and salvaged from farms around New York and New Jersey: blemished tomatoes, supersized watermelons, surplus squash and other fresh delicious produce.
