Objectives

We aim to put an end to food waste and encourage our cities to become less reliant on supermarkets and more self sufficient in growing our own. We collect over six tonnes of food waste a week which we then serve up in community cafes which benefit a range of people from members of the public who want to have their lunch with us but who are also interested in food waste to refugee groups and homeless people.

Activities

  • Collecting food waste
  • Educating on using up food/ freezing/cooking
  • Gardening and composting
  • Community cafes
  • Freegan boxes - veg box scheme using up food that would otherwise be thrown away
  • Sharehouse - come and shop in the anti-supermarket ¬†
