How To Host A ‘Binner’ Party

Fighting food waste is more fun with friends…

Looking for something a little different for your next social gathering? Why not get some of your favourite people together and host a Binner Party?

What’s a Binner Party?
A Binner Party is a dinner party based on using up food waste.

What kind of food should I use?
This depends on how complicated you want your party to be.  Here are some ideas:
1 – Everyone brings leftovers from dishes they’ve made that week and shares them.
2 – Each person cooks one or more dish using leftover ingredients from their own home.
3 – Each person collects food waste from an outside source (such as Olio or Food2Change) and uses it to prepare a dish.
4 – The group collects food waste from outside sources and comes together to spend the afternoon cooking and preparing dishes.

What else can I do?
Add some extra fun to your parties by including waste-themed activities:
1 –  Have everyone bring an old canvas bag to decorate with fabric paints, stencils and embroidery.
2 – Utensil swap – bring old kitchen gadgets or cooking tools that you never use and swap them with your friends.
3 – Set up your own cookbook book club.
4 – Make some wine cork crafts.

If your Binner Parties are a big success, you could try setting up a bigger event (such as a supper-club) and invite people to purchase tickets or donate to Feedback.
