Dublin Pride Week

Dublin Pride Week is an annual event that promotes a positive image for the City of Dublin.  Due to COVID-19 and the Shelter-in-Place Order, Dublin Pride Week will look a little different this year, but will last longer than usual!  Volunteer Day, which typically kicks off the week, will not happen this year. Instead, please join us for the following socially distanced activities, September through late October:

Make Soup Not Waste – A Virtual Food Waste Prevention Cooking Workshop


September 19, 10:30-12:30

Learn strategies that prevent food waste in this interactive workshop with Anne-Marie Bonneau, aka the Zero-Waste Chef. When you eat all the food you buy, you not only save money, you also conserve resources. During the pandemic, finding ways to use all of the food you have on hand means you can shop less frequently, and stay home longer, helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Tie on your apron, grab your knife and vegetables and join Anne-Marie and our virtual audience as we make soup together with what we found in our refrigerators. No two pots will be the same! Register here.
