Eat the Streets!

Online, Saturday 20th March - Sunday 20th June

Dublin City Council would like to announce the launch of a new festival run in conjunction with, and funded by, Creative Ireland.

‘Eat the Streets!’ is a Dublin City Council project that runs from March 20th to June 20th.

We all need to eat! Healthy food gives us energy to play, to create and to discover! Living in a city it is easy to walk down to the shops and buy your favorite food any day of the week. But, was it always this easy? And will it always be this easy? Taking care of the planet begins in the kitchen.

Eat the Streets! is exploring our city, Dublin’s food history, because sometimes you need to look back in time for ideas for the future.

The good news – Dublin has been growing for ages! The Vikings had to eat right? You can even learn about what the Vikings ate at the Botanical Gardens in Glasnevin.

From March to May, Eat the Streets! is challenging young people (and young at heart) in Dublin to grow their favourite fruits and vegetables, and to share their experiences and tips for growing! Eat the Streets! is also challenging young people to ask older family members for recipes and to share the recipes they discover or even create!

Eat the Streets! will end with a 10-day festival in June from the 11th to the 20th that will bring together chefs, food experts, growers, and producers to cook, to create and to discover our rich food history. Our chefs will amaze you with their twists on family favourites that you have shared us during our weekend cook-alongs. There will also be After Dinner Chats to share ideas and talk about the future of food.

So, let’s explore our roots by growing, cooking, creating and discovering together!

Saturday 20th March - Sunday 20th June

They use humour, board games and silence to steer their way through the maelstrom that is the 21st century. ‘The figure in Munch’s painting isn’t actually screaming!’ Hungry Paul said. ‘Really, are you sure?’ replied Le
