Sustainable Food Days (SFD) is a week-long program that celebrates and promotes sustainable food & drink initiatives (https://www.facebook.com/sfw.lx/).
Its aim is to engage and connect the public with the subject of food sustainability in a meaningful way that inspires a lasting, positive impact on the local food system.
It does this by bringing together different key players to synchronise their individual efforts and magnify their effect. This collective campaign catalyses the creation of a pro-active community working in the name of real, good food (and drink).
The types of activities that can be expected during SFD include:
-Interactive workshops -Documentary screenings -Roundtable discussions -Chef challenges -… and plenty more!
Sustainable Food Network is an idea that was kick-started by Mayya Papaya of Foodisms.The first edition, came to life in 2018 in Lisbon, from the 26th November to the 2nd December, with the voluntary efforts of some extraordinary individuals and organisations.
