Food for Thought.
Peace Gardens – Pinstone Street – Sheffield – S1 2HH

Food is not just about indulging ourselves with delicious treats, there are many more serious issues raised around food that also deserve to be considered as part of the biggest event in Sheffield’s food calendar; issues such as food poverty, managing food waste, the impact of our food choices on the environment and climate, sustainability and innovations in food. The Sheffield Food Festival team are working together with Regather to present the Food for Thought programme of talks and debates to be held in the Winter Gardens between 4pm and 6pm each day, featuring many of the local organisations doing great work in these areas. And in terms of putting its principles into practice, Sheffield Food Festival is working with the Real Junk Food Project this year to make the festival itself a zero food waste event.
