The Great Local Lunch

The Great Local Lunch connects farmers and local producers to food lovers, urban growers and the sustainable food industry. Hosted by Costa Georgiadis Official from ABC's Gardening Australia, over 200 growers and gleaners will serve it up to revolutionise our food system.

The Lunch begins with urban growers and gleaners being encouraged to register their harvest. Using a ‘crowd farming’ model, produce is grown or gleaned from gardens and local farms across Melbourne.

The harvest occurs during the month of February in the lead up to the event. Growers are encouraged to harvest their produce and deliver to assigned drop off points.

The produce is transported to the GLL chefs from the Kinfolk Cafe - who do not know the type and quantities of produce they will receive. After receiving the produce, our GLL chefs design a four-course menu and set about cooking up for over 200 guests.

This year guests can also win tickets to The Great Local Lunch through sharing an inspiring story about how you are redefining local food and waste.
