Give a Fork


As most of you know at DC we are strong supporters and practisers of consciousness. We love local, being sensible about how we impact the environment and have started asking the restaurants we review about this too! We are very close to launching our first food guide which focuses on this exact notion, more on that soon!

An active organisation on the topic of food sustainability is Sustainable Table, of which I have always been a strong supporter. And this year I am very chuffed to announce that I’ve been invited to be a Face of Change ambassador for their annual Give a Fork campaign.

The Give a Fork campaign will run from April 1 – 30, 2016. It’s main purpose is to get people thinking about the environmental and ethical impact of the food we buy.

As part of the campaign I will be taking the Grexy Teaser challenge (more on the three challenges below). The Grexy Teaser challenge involves: ditching the disposable cup for a reusable cup, saying no to bottled water by carrying a drink bottle and no straws when drinking out. I’ll be sharing my challenge via social media, as well as tips and tricks on how to Give a Fork about the way we eat and consume.

There are two ways YOU can get involved in the campaign:

1) Dine Out

Order the Give aFork special at a participating restaurant or cafe and raise funds to help us build a better food system, one meal at a time. Participating Victorian restaurants here.

2) Take a challenge – starts from $20 for the month.

Choose from one of 3 challenges to reduce your eco impact: Grexy Teaser, Halfway to Grexy or Drop Dead Grexy and help bring sexy back to environmentalism. Sign up here. In return for the $20 fee you’ll receive tips, tricks, emails, recipes and free access to Sustainable Table’s eBooks, The Clever Cook and The Good Fish Book

PLUS – Share photos of you and your mates participating on social media using the following hashtags, #GREXY & #GIVEAFORK – and you’ll go into the draw to win great prizes.

I hope you can get involved and help raise awareness and ultimately change our own behaviour around how our food choices can affect the environment.
