Adam Smith CHINWAG (Wednesday 28th March, DOORS/PWYF BUFFET 6:00PM)
£5.00 / On Sale
Chinwag announces acclaimed food activist Adam Smith as Wednesday 28th March guest.
As you know by now, Chinwag loves to celebrate local heroes, so we’re absolutely delighted to be welcoming Leeds’ very own Adam Smith to the Chinwag settee for a chat about life and whatever else comes up.
Adam is a founder and co-director of the visionary, multi-award-winning, global initiative: The Real Junk Food Project (TRJFP). Set up in December 2013, to revolutionise the disposal of avoidable food waste into landfill, the pioneering movement’s manifesto is to: feed bellies, not bins.
A professional chef for over ten years, Adam has held a wealth of head chef positions, internationally. Whilst in Australia, Adam witnessed the scale of food waste, agriculturally and within the catering industry. Upon his return to the UK, he was inspired to set up TRJFP. Adam and TRJFP have received numerous plaudits and awards from organisations ranging from NESTA to The Observer. In 2014, he was voted one of the forty most influential men in the world by AskMen. He has been a featured speaker on a truly memorable TedX talk and his story is so utterly inspiring that we could not pass up this chance to invite him for a chat about life, food and whatever else comes up.
As ever, we are supporting MAP, a Leeds based charity who run music and art programmes for young people at risk of exclusion from mainstream education: http://musicandartsproduction.org/ and splitting all donations with TRFJP http://therealjunkfoodproject.org/about/
Please come down, support two amazing charities doing wonderful stuff in our community.
