The 'Kitchen of the Unwanted Animal' is a food truck based in Amsterdam that reduces food waste by using animal meat that many people opt not to eat.
The unusual food truck concept came to be when the population of geese rose to dangerous levels and a coalition formed to shoot the animals to lower their population. In order to make use of these animals that were now being killed in the thousands, this food truck concept was born. The truck serves dishes made from meats that people tend not to buy including goose, pigeon, parakeet and horse.
This truck reduces food waste and in the process, is able to spark a conversation about human consumption habits.
