Upcoming Events At This Venue

October 18, 2014

Do you want to be inspired and be part of zero waste history? Well then help us out and volunteer for the first Feeding the 5000 in the United States! On Saturday, October 18th we’ll be making zero waste history by feeding 5,000+ people on food that would have otherwise been wasted. The day will include big name speakers, chef demos, food waste activities, a grocery giveaway and more! It will also truly be an Oakland event as we’ll have People’s Grocery blending smoothies from unwanted cosmetically “defective” or “inglorious” fruit. We’ll also be working with St. Vincent DePaul of Alameda County and their Community Dining Room and a Culinary Training program. There’ll be several more Oakland originals there but that’s a good start so please email me back with the hours you’d like to volunteer during 6am to 8pm on Sunday, October 18th at Frank Ogawa Plaza in downtown Oakland.

Oh, and every volunteer will get the coolest enviro-swag you’ll find with a free 100% recycled cotton/poly t-shirt with Feeding the 5000 event graphics designed by Oaklandish!

Thanks for considering all, hope to see you there making history and delicious food with us!

Please contact the Event Coordinator, Jordon Figuerido, if you’d like to get involved.
