On Saturday 28th September This is Rubbish, an anti food waste campaign focusing on the enormous issue of industry level food waste will be running workshops at an FRP Give or Take Event in Walthamstow.
This is Rubbish will lead you through the food supply chain with story-based activities and practical games, and look forward to talking to you about what the local community can do.
Visitors to this Give or Take event can take action on the day by helping This is Rubbish chop surplus fruit.
At 3pm this fruit will be paraded to Wathamstow Town Square for a public, participatory fruit salad toss. The fruit salad will be given out for free to any curious passers by.
This is Rubbish are off to the second event of the summer, to share stories of creative campaigning to bring a policy led end to current levels of food waste occurring in the industry. We will be drawing on our 2011 Feast tour and the recent IFWAP report, that we launched in Parliament back in May. We will also be staying true to our participatory roots, and hosting a mass This is Rubbish salad toss. You are all invited to make your own dinner (well, dessert) and place a pledge for policy measures to prevent large quantities of food waste arising in the food supply chain. We only ask one thing, make a scene and come and toss your dessert in a tarpaulin dressed in your finest dinner dress. We like ceremony you see. Book you tickets here, and see you in the clouds!
It’s that time again, where end of project reports must be written and further funding applications worked up and submitted. While evaluating impact, we thought it might be worth sharing some of the media coverage that we got off the back of our Parliamentary Counting What Matters Launch.
