Going to be in London on December 16th…
No? Well you should be. 5000 (or at least a very large number) are about to be served free lunch in Trafalgar Sq.
Numerous groups are involved each with their own take on reducing food waste in the UK. We will be there handing out free smoothies made from fruit which otherwise would have been land-filled, and talking to people about the food that is wasted before it even gets to them.
Our key messages:
1. Less than 40% of UK food waste is produced by households.
2. We want to see all retailers obliged to report on the food waste they generate in
their activities, with annual reports audited and publicised by an independent commission.
3. We want the government to introduce an obligation upon retailers to reduce
We have a growing band of volunteers helping us to make the day a success, we need stewards, assistants for bicycle powered smoothie makers, smoothie dispensers and general hands on deck. If you have a couple of hours spare, get in touch before hand and we will be happy to make you part of the team and you can help decide where the campaign goes in the future.
