ResQ - Ugly Food Made Delicious!

ResQ is made possible by a grant from People's Liberty.

In partnership with Eli’s BBQ and Cincinnati Cooks Catering, we’ll be serving a tasty, chef-made, BBQ-style meal, made with imperfect produce. Food served starting at 5:30p and will continue until 7:30p or until it's all gone. We'll also hosting some frank conversations with local experts such as;

- Doug Crouch, Permaculture Expert - Turning waste into valuable resources

- Michele Balz, Assistant Solid Waste Manager at Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District - How home composting can help recycle food scraps and reduce waste

- Tom Sparough, The Space Painter, storyteller and juggler will illustrate, through juggling, a story of the king in search of the best food for the feast. Humor and wisdom come alive in this fun-tastic tale of deliciousness.

- Jenny Lohmann, Programs Specialist at Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District– Let’s Play ResQ Jeopardy!

- Lisa C. Andrews, MEd, RD, LD and Owner of Sound Bites Nutrition, LLC - Making the most of your plate by eating more plant-based foods. It's what's inside that counts.

Enjoy a meal for only $5 or join us for the just the conversation for FREE.

In the case of rain, the event will be held at The People's Liberty space across from Findlay Market at 1805 Elm St.


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Nope. But if you want to purchase a beer in the Biergarten you will need to be of legal age.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There's plenty of street parking and lots to hitch your horse and wagon too or take the street car, bus or hot air balloon (careful with the landing).

What can I bring into the event?

An open mind, an empty stomach and all the friends, family members and strangers you can bring with you. If it's a sunny day, we recommend you were a hat or something to cover your head.
