On May 9th, one day before the REFRESH final conference 2019 that was organized in cooperation with the Barcelona Design Centre, four on hands experience were offered, featuring food waste innovators from business and civil society in the Barcelona area. One of these was "Food-for-Thought: an Interactive Dialogue over Dinner about Food Sustainability in the City", organized by Mayya Papaya from Foodisms.

It’s not everyday you get to sit down and enjoy a delicious vegetarian meal with a guided discussion on food itself! Our host of the evening, Mayya Papaya from Foodisms, facilitated an open & interactive dialogue over dinner to talk sustainable food and what this term actually means in the urban context. As a seasoned conversation starter on the topic, Mayya served up some serious food-for-thought as she drew inspiration from all sorts of sustainable food examples and experiences in the city of Barcelona and beyond. All participants had the chance to share their impressions and stories as we collectively cooked-up an engaging conversation together in preparation for the REFRESH Final Conference! The dinner took place in an up-and-coming kitchen space run by a young & dynamic couple who are real-life champions for sustainable food and living in all that they do. They prepared a delicious a 3-course meal using seasonal and sustainably sourced ingredients and biodynamic wine to fuel the occasion.
