From Trash to Table

If you’re like most Americans, when you eat strawberries, you cut off the green leafy tops
and throw them away. When you have cold, leftover dredges in the bottom of your coffee pot, you pour them down the drain without a second thought. 

Salvage Supperclub

Salvage Supperclub not only prepares food items that are typically discarded, but they serve the finished product inside a dumpster. By creating gourmet meals from food scraps that usually go to waste, they promote sustainable eating habits and challenge people to rethink food.

In the dumpster dining room, Salvage Supperclub serves dishes like “Office Coffee Butter & Recycled Rice Bread,” “Candied Strawberry Tops” and “Broccoli Stalk Slaw.” They use not so attractive scraps, like bruised fruit, pineapple cores, and mushroom stems, to concoct delicious dishes.

Salvage Supperclub is based in New York City but rolls their thoroughly disinfected dumpster all across the country.
