Disco Soup is a global movement in which volunteers bring together people to prepare free delicious meals using food that would have otherwise gone to waste. The Disco Part is simple! There are loud beats being played to get you bopping while you're chopping. Disco Soups have been organised by community activists all over the world from Paris to NYC.
Come and peel, cook, dance and eat fruits and vegetables picked up from HK wet markets, supermarkets and wholesalers. Feel free to pass by for 1 minute, 10 minutes, 1 hour or more! You don't have to stay all the time! This Disco Soup is organised by volunteers with the amazing support of Locofama!
