Urban Forage and Feast - a community dinner celebrating local produce and food leadership grown in Melbourne's backyard.
The YFM Melbourne crew are whipping up a feast made exclusively with local fresh produce straight from community gardens, balcony backyards and small producer farms. The outdoor picnic-style dinner, with set up generously donated by Melbourne Picnics, aims to highlight the amazing range of food produced within Melbourne, the stories connected to them, and the city's passionate food champions.
Our menu will share the stories of local food producers and backyard growers, including Woodstock Flour (Berrigan NSW), Day's Walk Farm (Keilor), That's Amore! cheese (Thomastown), Maria of My Green Garden (Donvale) and many more.
We will be joined on the night by several incredible YFM Melbourne alumni who are already rocking the youth food leadership scene in our city and beyond.
Join us for a night of scrumptious food, home-grown stories and edible conversations to celebrate the amazing people and food Melbourne's backyard has to offer.
