Action Kashkarikas is very happy to have achieved its initial target!
Between December 2016 and February 2018 we organised 15 local events (classes, demos, workshops, lectures, conferences, gala dinners) in the countries we visited.
250 participants joined our classes, learnt about the better use of ingredients and said STOP to food waste.
350 guests tasted our food.
We collected 6,184 US$ funds, donated to Action against Hunger and helped them in the fight against hunger and malnutrition.
We are proud to have touched the lives of 137 children and their families around the world.

Lecture with Israeli Association for Culinary Culture Tel Aviv
Febrauray 2018 Fundraising dinner in Barcelona Restaurant Capicua
We successfully utilize the food waste like fruit and vegetable trimmings, peels, left-overs, and recycle food scraps as an exciting food adventure and a most enjoyable dining experience. We help others to learn to use every opportunity to prevent food waste, to show ways to improve our practices and attitudes about waste, to strengthen sustainability of the food system and to be a catalyst for changing the social acceptability of wasted food.
CHECK OUR PROGRAM BELOW. IF YOU WANT TO HOST US IN YOUR CITY DURING OUR FOOD WASTE AWARENESS WORLD TOUR, PLEASE CONTACT US AT email@example.com
The conferences are open to public.
Preparing good food does not necessarily mean to use expensive, luxurious or 'noble' ingredients. The objective is to pass the message that basic ingredients and ‘waste’ can be turned into tasty, healthy and presentable food. We have a slide show and we give examples from our repertoire.
These are educational sessions (with a participation fee or sponsored). We talk about food waste and then show examples of Turkish and Sephardi cuisines using ‘edible wastes’ and low-cost ingredients.
DAY: PREPARATION and COOKING for DINNER
The dinner is prepared in the kitchen premises of our partners in each country (cooking schools, restaurants, associations) We coordinate the process with the participation of the local kitchen team. The dinner is open to public (with a participation fee or sponsored) for fundraising.
EVENING: FUNDRAISING DINNER
Meze starter, Soup/ Salad, Main dish, Dessert, Coffee and mignardises
