Waste Is Gold

Waste is Gold is an anti-food waste “popup” with restaurants in Austin, featuring restaurants that have created dishes made out of food waste ingredients. Participating chefs are challenged to design a dish or repurpose an existing menu item and customers can order these items on the weekend of Jan 28th-30st for curbside pickup, delivery, and dine-in. In the US alone, 40% of all food produced goes uneaten, making up 133 billion pounds in landfills and totaling $161 billion of food waste per year. It’s in this backdrop that Choco – a new app providing free order management technology to restaurants and food suppliers – has organized this campaign. The initiative touches on the interconnections of food, sustainability, and technology for the future of restaurants. Participating restaurants:

Foreign & Domestic – North Loop (306 E 53rd St, Austin, TX)

Casa de Luz – Barton Creek (1701 Toomey Rd, Austin, TX)

Il Brutto – East Austin (1601 E 6th St, Austin, TX)

Otoko x Watertrade – South Congress (1603 South Congress Avenue, Austin, TX)
