The Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District and La Soupe are hosting this festival to raise awareness about food waste.

This carnival invites families to enjoy lunch while learning about the value of food through games, music, educational booths, cooking demos and giveaways.

Travel through Washington Park with a Foodie Passport — if you complete the passport, you leave with a reusable bag filled with groceries.

La Soupe will be serving a dish featuring donated food, Plant Cincinnati will be grilling, the indoor 80 Acres Farms will have salad and there will be a “produce petting zoo” to learn how to store food correctly.

The event is the result of a nationwide campaign to reduce food waste by 50 percent by 2030.

11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8. Free admission. Washington Park, 1230 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine, hamiltoncountyrecycles.org.
