GIVE A FORK! about Sustainable Seafood

Relax over dinner with friends and learn about sustainable seafood

Give A Fork! 2013

The latest initiative by Melbourne’s Sustainable Table, GIVE A FORK! challenges us all to consider what we put on our plates, this year’s theme is Sustainable Seafood.

Give a Fork! is an opportunity for you and your friends and family to get together over a meal and learn about how you can live and eat more sustainably. Here’s how it works:

Host a sustainable seafood dinner party during the campaign which runs from October 7-14. Sustainable Table will provide you with a host pack which includes:

  • A Fishy Business DVD to show on the night (6 mins)
  • A 40-page Sustainable Seafood e-Cookbook to provide you with all the recipes and ideas to host a fabulous dinner party
  • Conversation starter coasters
  • 5 Steps to Sustainability placemats
  • Fishy-friend decorations to make your dinner party extra special
  • Sustainable Seafood guides for your guests, which include recipes and a wallet Switch your Fish guide
  • Donation receipt book
  • Beautiful gifts from their partners at ecostore and Dumbo Feather magazine – both well worth checking out even if you’re not able to host a dinner. Ecostore laundry products and dish-washing liquid have removed the itch from my world and Dumbo Feather is like food for the eyes and mind.

This is a light-hearted way of tackling a serious issue, so if you want to become more environmentally aware and learn how to make more sustainable seafood choices the next time you’re at the fish markets, get on board with your friends and family. Contact Sustainable Table now to organise delivery of your host pack.
