We encourage people to grow their own food, perhaps at the front of their houses, and to share the excess food with their neighbours.
Food Out Front seeks to reduce food waste, teach people about where food comes from, and to increase community connection. The idea for this project came out of conversations where the participants were very concerned about the amount of food waste in Australia, and the lack of knowledge about where food comes from, resulting in unsustainable food production practices. Food Out Front encourages people to grow their own food, perhaps at the front of their houses, and to share the excess food with their neighbours. From our research for this idea, we learnt of the myriad of projects doing similar food sharing projects. More, in fact, than we anticipated. Rather than compete with these established projects, we decided to create a platform that gives publicity for these amazing projects. We have met many people active in this space and benefited from their insiders' knowledge. We have developed a website and are now reaching out to thise community groups, schools, organisations, councils who are interested in having us write stories about their projects and their experiences.
