About the author
Hi! My name is Faye and I will be your guide through Amsterdam for the day! Enjoys randomness chat, good banter and will help you find the best dealers in fun, food and adventure.

A wise man once told me that the he found it remarkable how much people invest in expensive high tech toys and luxurious interiors, yet when it comes to buying food people want the cheapest they can find. “Food is something that you consume, that travels through your internal system and we want the cheapest deal!” He noted that investing in your body is the most valuable thing you can do, since your stuck with it until you die.

Starting this Friday the Youth Food Movement will provide three days filled with food for thought. Offering a food conscious trip by means of film, debate, workshops, art and music. Do you want to enlighten yourself on the value of food? Then visit Studio K this weekend!
