Guests at the first Annual Awareness Dinner on Food Wastage earlier this week did their utmost to further the evening's cause, making short work of the buffet prepared by internationally renowned chef Hussein Hadid. The event, organized by ACT NGO Monday evening to raise awareness of the issue of food waste, was hosted by Tawlet in Mar Mikhail. The menu was prepared largely using fruit and vegetables donated by Spinneys, one of ACT's main partners in reducing the amount of food thrown away unnecessarily.Abdul Haq said they had a bipartite approach to reach this target.For Souk el Tayeb, the organization behind Tawlet, hosting the dinner at their restaurant made perfect sense.Tawlet is keen to encourage other restaurants to start donating unused food. Abdul Haq hopes that events like this will accelerate the process.
