Think Act Change: "Awesome Sauce: The Future of Food" Pitch Event w/speakers!

**Doors open 6.30pm, talks start promptly at 7pm** (If you want the free booze, arrive early!!)

Think Act Change is stoked to hook up with the The Awesome Foundation for an epic celebration of Good Food Month at our upcoming event "Awesome Sauce: The Future of Food"

Part talks, part pitch event, part food celebration - this will be an amazing night that will leave your mind feeling nourished and your spirit inspired! 

This month the Awesome Foundation will be giving YOU a chance to either pitch for a prize OR simply come along and YOUR vote will help us decide which social entrepreneur’s pitch for a more sustainable, ethical and beautiful food future receives a cash prize to turn their idea into a reality!

Also hear from high profile food advocates Jess Miller (Grow it Local), Youth Food Movement & Food Orbit, talk about the great work they’ve been doing around Sydney. 

There's also going to be a live cooking demonstration with Alexx Stuart and a whole lot of other surprises!

There will be wine tasting courtesy of our sponsor Kooks & Co Wines, who are also pitching in $1000 giving the Awesome Foundation a whopping $2000 grant for the winning pitch! There's also going to be FREE cider from our sponsors The Apple Thief Cider!! First come first served ;) 

THE PRIZES: $1500 first place, $500 for the runner up!

Want to pitch on the night? Apply to the Awesome Foundation Sydney now with YOUR FOOD RELATED IDEA!

Applications close: Wednesday 2 October

Awesome Sauce is hosted by the Awesome Foundation Sydney, who help turn awesome thoughts into awesome deeds. Every month the Awesome Foundation Sydney awards a $1,000 no-strings-attached grant to the most awesome submitted application.

Previous recipients of an Awesome Foundation Sydney grant include: a project to develop the world’s smallest patch synthesizer, the Green Bans Art Walk and Exhibition, and Physique, a weekly 80s themed aerobics night.

This is a night NOT to be missed! See y'all there :)

    Thanks for a great night, such a good vibe. I wanted to share an upcoming event at with you all at Govindas on World Food Day(Tuesday October 15): A film launch by Sydney-based development organisation AFAP. The film is a collection of stories by people who are overcoming hunger and poverty in Zimbabwe. The film willl be followed by a brief Q&A and Govinda's delicious buffet. Entry price is only $10 and all the proceeds go to food security projects in Africa. It will be a great and inspiring night! Hope to see you there.

    Great night guys and loved the venue. Looking forward to the next one and meeting some more cool people. on a side note is anyone interested in starting a co-op in the crows nest area? Just a thought... email [masked] and lets chat about it.

    • Ben R.

      Allister - like it! I live in Abbotsford near Drummoyne and there's basically nothing closer than Newtown co-op wise. I don't have the bandwidth myself right now to run with it but you go get it!

      October 9, 2013

    • Gordon R.

      Hey Allister. We're researching a story about coops around Australia for Otter right now - it would be great to include a few pointers on how to get one going to share with the rest of Australia - interested in keeping notes as you go and sharing them? [masked]

      Glad you guys enjoyed it - we loved being at TAC last night. All round awesomeness!

      Few options if you're after more eggplant goodness - (1) we are at Frenchs Forest/Concord/Northside­ markets (2) we've just started taking email orders or (3) I hand deliver in the city area every now and then so let me know if this works. happy eating! cheers, Eat Me folks

    Avis did you and your amazing team outdo yourself yet again!!?? What an epic night of yumminess. I LOVED the grungey feel of the car park space, and - can we have free food and alcohol at every event from now on please? :-)) Great to meet so many people who love good food, have a passion for it and want to spread the love to others!
