The Pod organised their first Real Junk Food Takeover on the 21st of October, a fascinating catering initiative using intercepted food.
RAWKUS, RAG and War on Hunger (University of Warwick) are organising another Disco Soup, on Wednesday 25th November at the University of Warwick. This is a free event during which people are invited to cook and eat a soup, made with veg that would otherwise go to waste. All this listening to good music!
It’s great to see that – using different means and at different scales – there are many initiatives raising awareness about the colossal amounts of food being wasted every day… Food waste is a waste of resources, a waste of money, a waste of time and energy. It is a sign of our problematic food system and it has a big impact on climate change too. All good reasons to do something about it!
The Coventry Food Justice Network is interested in food waste too, because this is not simply about agriculture, it is about social justice! We are planning a food waste awareness event in the spring 2016 in Coventry: a fun event to talk about our experiences and share skills (food growing, cooking, storing, preserving…) and, above all, to celebrate good, healthy, fair food!
If you’re interested in joining the preparations, drop us an email, we’d love to hear from you!
