The weekend of May 5th has been quite busy for the Food in Action team!
In addition to Eat Up Sundsvall, we co organised a Food Hackaton in Torsta Kunskapscentrum / Grönt Center in Ås. This Hackaton was an event where creative individuals gather during 48 hours and together turn problems into something magical.
