Power to the pieper (POTATO)

Unfortunately, the Dutch food system isn't great when it comes to the way it treats certain food types and farmers. But the good news is that our friends from the Youth Food Movement (YFM) are doing something about that... They're organizing  'Power to the Pieper (Potato)' - an event to raise awareness about food waste in the potato industry!

At the moment, the Netherlands exports nearly as many potatoes as it imports, plus there are very strict limitations on Dutch farmers selling homegrown potatoes inside Holland, ridiculous right? To draw attention to this, YFM are dumping a ton(!) of potatoes on Dam Square this weekend! So drop by and pick up free potatoes plus some great recipes!

And that's not all, Mediamatic are holding an onion party tomorrow evening for the same reason. What a very foodie weekend!
