“Locating alternative food chains – journeys of surplus food”
Dr. Daisy D.S. TAM | 譚迪詩博士 (HK Baptist University) […]
Conducted in English with bi-lingual discussion
22 August 2015 (Saturday); 3:00pm @ Floating Projects (8D, no. 40 Wong Chuk Hang Road)
From the days of working as a trader selling apples in London’s Borough Market, I have been fascinated by the alternative and subterranean economies of leftover food. Peddling leftovers in the market has opened up different worlds of engaging with food which led me to my current project on Hong Kong’s food rescue operations. Locating, channelling and distributing surplus food to places where they might be used as a resource is not a form of “charity” but raises our awareness to the problems of our current food system. My talk will explore these issues in the context of moving towards a more ethical food system.
