Dublin City Council is delighted to announce that it will be hosting the ‘Eat the Streets!’ Festival at the National Museum of Ireland – Decorative Arts & History, Collins Barracks, Dublin 7, on Saturday September 17th from 12pm to 5pm.
The festival is taking place as part of Dublin Climate Action Week 2022.
There will be free workshops for children and the young at heart. You can learn how to pickle vegetables, to chop like a chef and earn your knife licence, or how to turn food scraps into compost. Our chefs will be ready to cook with you, and share their tips on climate action in the kitchen! You can also take part in a food-inspired treasure hunt that will take you through the halls of the museum.
A series of After-Lunch Chats will be hosted to share ideas and talk about how food can be a solution to climate change, and of course delicious food and fun entertainment for all.
Come join us and celebrate how we can eat our way to a healthier planet!
“Dublin has recently signed the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact, joining 240 cities around the world committed to addressing urban food challenges,” said the Lord Mayor of Dublin Caroline Conroy. “Eat the Streets! is a conversation about our food system. Taking care of the planet for the future begins in the kitchen. So, let’s explore our roots by growing, cooking, creating and discovering together!”
Festival Organiser Michelle Darmody said: “Eat the Streets! Festival is a celebration of Dublin’s rich food culture. By growing, cooking, creating and discovering the food around us we explore ways to create a vibrant and more sustainable future. There will be a host of free workshops, engaging talks, and plenty of information and ideas. So, come to the National Museum, Collins Barracks on September 17th and help us put down roots for a tastier tomorrow.”
