The Visionary Kitchen is a volunteer organization that hosts weekly free dinners for up to 10 guests using food waste that has reached its sell-by date. What started out as an exclusive invite-only dinner night for friends later became an open kitchen to help fight the growing food surplus problem in Denmark.
