New sustainable food concept t

In the market, many ugly agricultural products are hard to sell and often end up eliminated or discarded. According to statistics from the Environmental Protection Administration, 2,000 metric tons of imported food is discarded each year in Taiwan, which is equivalent to about 5 million lunches. To address this serious food waste problem, Huamei Community Surplus Restaurant (华美社区厨房) is using creativity to maintain the value of ugly food and change people's attitude towards so-called food waste.

In addition to cooking up a buffet created from rejected food products, Huamei Community Surplus Restaurant also invites residents to take home free surplus produce in the afternoon and jointly help clean and sort vegetables. Visitors are also encouraged to bring any food items close to expiry, which they can swap for things in the "compassion" fridge. Such activities have not only helped to build cohesiveness in the neighborhood but also provide a direct response to the food waste crisis - through the power of "food," Huamei Community Surplus Restaurant has established a sense camaraderie among community residents. So next time you sit down to enjoy a delicious meal, remember to cherish every bite, because god food doesn't come easy.

食物永续新观念 剩余食材变佳餚

在市场上,许多卖相较差的农产品,容易遭到淘汰或丢弃。根据环保署统计,台湾平均每年报废进口蔬果约有2000公吨,约等于500万个便当,造成严重的食物浪费,为了因应此问题,华美社区厨房推行剩食创意料理,延续食物的价值,并打破民众对剰食的饮食迷思。

除了供应剩食料理外,华美厨房也于下午时段,开放社区民众免费拿菜活动,许多居民也会带着即期食材来爱心冰箱做交换,并一同帮忙整菜和挑菜,邻里间联络感情的同时,也一同响应剩食运动。透过「食」的力量强化了社区居民互助意识,当一道道美味佳餚上桌,开心用餐时,我们都应珍惜着每样食物的得来不易。
