Food Scrap Dining

The Salvage Supperclub Initiative Serves Food From Dumpsters in a 6 Course Meal

If you've ever considered eating food out of the garbage, you might enjoy dining at New York City's Salvage Supperclub. Established last month by graduate student Josh Treuhaft, the food initiative gives people the chance to pay $50 for a six course meal made out of food scraps found in a dumpster. While the concept is a bit disgusting, the idea is that good food doesn't go to waste. Chefs from the Natural Gourmet Institute create the dishes out of 'overripe' vegetables and fruit, which also could redefine what people consider to be wasted produce.

Fittingly, people also dine in a retro-fitted demolition dumpster site. Salvage Supperclub will features dishes from chefs around the city, and the findings will serve as Josh's master's thesis.
Trend Themes
1. Food Waste Reduction - The Salvage Supperclub initiative creates opportunities to reduce food waste by using overripe fruits and vegetables to create restaurant-worthy meals.
2. Sustainable Dining - Diners are becoming more eco-conscious, and restaurants that incorporate sustainable practices offer opportunities to attract this growing customer base.
3. Alternative Dining Experiences - Innovative dining concepts, such as Salvage Supperclub, offer customers unique and memorable experiences that set them apart from traditional restaurant options.
Industry Implications
1. Hospitality - Hotels and restaurants can adopt sustainable practices and innovative initiatives to target eco-conscious and adventurous diners looking for unique dining experiences.
2. Food and Beverage - Incorporating sustainable practices in food production and reducing food waste can attract eco-conscious customers and improve brand perception for companies in the food and beverage industry.
3. Environmental Sustainability - Businesses can create innovative solutions to address and reduce food waste, contributing to larger sustainability efforts and benefiting the environment.
