Look out for the 'ShefFood' t-shirts and the 'Table Talks' signs and join them to share food, drink and conversation together and learn how we can all work together to make the food system in Sheffield better for everyone. Mr & Mrs VegHead, Sat - Mon, 12-2pm A Sheffield Food Festival twist to everyone's favourite Mr Potato Head, everything you need to make a crazy fruit and veg head will be provided. There will be fruit and veg head selfies to share on social media, and a competition for the best head ever! Suitable for all ages. No Junk Fruit Juicing, Sat, 2-4pm Kids love drinking fruit juice, but do they know how easy it is to make? Kids can get hands on and messy as they learn about the simple process of making (and drinking!) fruit juice. Fresh fruit, leftover fruit or any fruit that would otherwise go to waste will be available to use, so it's a great opportunity to learn about reducing food waste too. Keeping Chickens At Home, Sun, 2-4pm Kids love visiting the farm and learning where their food comes from. Kids also love taking care of pets. Keeping chickens is a great way to combine both, plus the family gets to eat fresh, tasty eggs. There will be a small flock of hens to watch and feed, and people who are passionate about chickens to talk with. Kids Seed Sowing, Mon, 2-4pm Once they have grown their own, kids love growing their own veg. They are more likely to eat them and they'll have learned a little bit about where food comes from. Kids can decorate their own pot and plant some veggie seeds to take home. Even if you don't have a garden you can grow your own delicious vegetables in a window box or on a balcony, it's easy! Disco Soup, Sat - Mon, 4-6pm Join the party to collect, chop, and cook leftover food or any food that would otherwise go to waste. The music will be pumping, everyone will be dancing and we'll all enjoy delicious soup! Part of Festival of Debate 2019, in association with SHEF FOOD and the Sheffield Food Festival.
