Disco Soup started 6 years ago in Berlin, Germany, as Schnippeldisko, a ‘protest soup’, against food waste that fed 8000 people. From then on, they started to spread across the world as a fun, meaningful way to bring this crisis into focus.
@FoodBlessed hosted the first Dsico soup in Lebanon back in 2014! We’ve been helped organized around 7 disco soups since then! The aim of the event is to raise awareness of the unimaginable levels of food waste globally and to catalyse action by promoting delicious solutions to food waste.
This was our second Disco Soup that was organized with make sense and hosted by Badaro farmer’s market! It was a huge success, we were able to save 50kg of vegetables and fruits from waste last Sunday (special thanks to Alkhodarje ), and also we were able to rescue some quinoa and chia seeds and delicious grains thanks to Wesley’s Wholesale!
While listening to funky music, we cooked some yummy dishes such as:
🥝 kiwi salad
🥦quinoa and maallfouf salad, and…
🍵 a HUUuuge soup (potatoes, maalfouf, carots, quinoa and onions)!!!!

On Nov. 23, Hunger Hero Maya Terro, co-founder and executive director at FoodBlesssed, gave training session for a food processing center executed under the BALADI Program in Khiara village, West Bekaa.
The Khiara project is an agro-food processing center aims at helping the women of the village to produce and sell food products through the local cooperative called ”Cooperative Productivity Association for Khiyara (CPAK)”. The project also aims to create job opportunities for the local women in need.
The project is designed to produce jam, molasses and bakery products.
In her presentation, Hunger Hero Maya introduced FoodBlessed to the people in Khiara and offered a capacity building session on how you avoid food waste and ho to reduce the amount of food going to the waste during preparation, storing and selling their products. The session as part of many to come aimed at helping the municipalities and the local communities improve their environmental knowledge as well as the safety in all its aspects.
Ps. TERRE Liban is responsible for ensuring the environmental compliance of BALADI projects.
