Event draws attention to food waste

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —

Fusion Charlottetown is toying with ideas for Disco Soup on Nov. 9.

Organizers have volunteers, music and they even have a chef.

Disco Soup, an initiative of Fusion Charlottetown, brings together community members to gather and prepare ingredients that would otherwise become food waste. These ingredients will be turned into a communal meal that will be shared by all participants and it was developed in partnership with the P.E.I. Food Exchange.

Fusion is a non-profit group that calls itself the voice of positive change for young people in the city.

Kendra Mellish, a volunteer and board member with Fusion, is interested in leading an event on the UPEI campus possibly a series of workshops, on food production and food waste.
