SINT MAARTEN (GREAT BAY) - Freegan Food Foundation, a trailblazer in the fight against food waste, proudly announces its 5th-anniversary fundraising festival, an evening set to celebrate half a decade of impactful work and inspire continue support for the organization’s mission.
Join us on November 25 between 5PM and 9PM at our Headquarters on Long Wall Road (next to the sports auditorium) for a memorable night featuring a mouthwatering sustainable BBQ, live entertainment, and a chance to make a difference through our exciting raffle extravaganza.
This milestone event not only commemorates Freegan’s journey, but also amplifies our commitment to a future where no edible food nor used clothing and household items goes to waste.
The Festival will showcase a sustainable Fashion Show, with models straight from the community, highlighting the treasures you can find in Freegan’s own thrift store. Guests will enjoy an evening where children can get face painted (and adults too!), donated by Funtopia, and where performances of National Institute of the Arts and the Tribute Troupe promise to make this an unforgettable experience for all attendees.

Raffle proceeds will directly contribute to the Freegan Food Foundation’s ongoing efforts to rescue surplus food, feed those in need and advocate for positive change in the food industry.
