We were so happy to feature Rita who presented her project titled, Recycled Restaurant, at our event on April 2nd! Read more about Rita’s project below:
Why does this idea matter to you and to the city of Oslo?
It would help reducing Oslo’s food waste. It would align with “Matkastelov” that Framtiden i Våre Hender is proposing. It would create jobs: It would definitely employ cooks and kitchen workers. It would increase public awareness of global food production issues and food waste problems. Why does it matter for me? Waste reduction and environmentalism was always important for me. By getting up a restaurant run on food waste it would fulfil an old dream of mine.
How will you use this microfunding?
I would use this money to invest in running a pilot version of this on the next Restaurant Day. If there is any leftover I would invest in paying for all the things needed to start up this restaurant in Oslo.
What elements of community or sustainability will be addressed with your idea?
Food waste; Issues with our current global food production; Environmental friendly eating
