The Rediscovery Centre was delighted to support the inspiring Ballymun Food Forum event last Tuesday at Axis Ballymun, exploring the future of food systems in Ireland and the role we can all play in reducing food waste.

From Tadgh Byrne’s thought-provoking film “Dinner 2050” to renowned Chef Conor Spacey’s engaging food waste demonstration, the day was packed with insightful discussions. The expert panel, featuring Angela Ruttledge, Robert Murphy, Tadgh Byrne, Conor Spacey, and Eilis Davenport, delved into important topics such as food systems, politics, rescue efforts, and the future of food in Ballymun.

The day finished off with a sustainable lunch in the Boiler House Café, catered by our wonderful café team.

A big shout-out to Ballymun chefs Eilis Davenport and Tony O’Donnell for spearheading this incredible event, as well as their work creating and powering the Ballymun Food Forum.

This event was co-organised by participants of the Rediscovery Centre’s ECCO Project, and brought together a powerhouse of passionate people to make it happen.

Congratulations to Eilis, Tony, Gayle, Tom, Laura, Ger, Eoin, Ciara, Maddie, Megan, Abdul, Paddy, and our own Averil for their hard work in making this event a success!

The ECCO project is supported by the Community Climate Action Programme: Climate Education, Capacity Building and Learning by Doing (Strand 2), which is funded by the Government of Ireland through the Department of Environment Climate and Communications.
