Who’s hungry ? I’m not! But when I saw this, I just couldn’t hold back.

‘LEFTOVERS’ was an exhibition regarding food recycling. It was held at the Bower Ashton University campus. I had no idea about it till I started following these suspicious men:

They were located right outside the exhibition space where they were endlessly cooking like there was no tomorrow. For free. Free food not only to eat but to take away with you as well.

The idea was:

‘Leftovers’ showcases documentary driven artwork that interrogates and challenges our conceptions and knowledge of existing systems of food production, distribution and waste in the UK. By recognizing this subject matter also as a global issue, it reinforces the importance of documenting the positive steps / projects made locally within Bristol.’

Skipchen is a representative café restaurant of this idea as well as a part of The Real Junk Food Project.

Based in Stokes Croft (BS1 3RW) with a pay-as-you-feel ethos, Skipchen intercepts food that would otherwise go to waste, and serve it in the café. It is a collaborative, entirely volunteer effort in order to create radical change in our food system since we currently waste 15 million tons of food a year in the U.K, as malnutrition continues to rise.

Back to the exhibition space, you may now feast (your eyes) with tan tan taaaaaaaan THE CONFESSION BOOTH !

Are you a sinner? Do you pollute your belly with fast food and have no one to confess it to? Did you eat that big bucket of chicken nuggets instead of the apple next to it? AGAIN? The confession booth gives you the opportunity to take it all out . J No it’s not a communal toilet, you may only take it all out verbally, please. So you go in there, take a seat (wow that was close thank you grammar) and the ‘food priest’ next to you hears all you have to say. All your worries, your sins your diet concerns and helps you to move on. I hope someone would have said this to me before I entered the booth as I went in and started mumbling about my dirty past that had NO relation to junk food. Oh well…

Then there was the edible paper !

In order to promote recycle they came up with this paper where you could eat it after using it. It didn’t have any specific flavor but just the idea of it was clever and functional.

According to my personal research and statistics, 99,99% of us manipulate our budget in a rather abusive way. So

If it’s the end of the month, you spent all your money in pints, and the next loan hasn’t arrived yet, DON’T PANIC! Skiptchen will save your soul, with your kind contribution both parties will benefit J
