Young foodies will be treated to a jam-packed program of free activities, workshops and performances to educate kids about the food system, health and protecting the environment.
The free Little Food Festival, 19 – 20 April – combines education, exploration, creativity and fun to help kids re-imagine what the future will look like for them, their families and communities, and the planet.
Presented by the Sandro Demaio Foundation, Fed Square, Monash University and with Event Partner City of Melbourne, Fed Square will be split into six key activity zones themed around an element of the food system: from growing food, to moving it, buying it, cooking it, eating, and disposing or reusing it sustainably.
Families can expect high energy performances by Junkyard Beats using ordinary kitchen objects to make music, a fast-paced Recycling Relay Race by Veolia, a chance to blend your own smoothie with Bike n’ Blend and interactive, live demonstrations on healthy cooking, lunchbox hacks, seasonal planting and composting.
