Feed the 1000

Every year the average family throws away enough food to make 1,000 meals

Feed the 1,000 comes to Hammersmith and Fulham on Wednesday 19 September 2012.

Every year 1,000 meals could be made with the food the average family throws in to their bins. Across the whole of the UK this means we throw away 7.2 billion tonnes of food from our homes.

To highlight the issue, local residents will have the opportunity to receive a free meal on Wednesday 19 September from 12 - 4pm in Ravenscourt Park, Hammersmith.

The event will make a 1,000 meals using the same amount of money the average family spends of food it throws away each year. That's £50 per month!

If you live within one of the fours boroughs (Hammersmith and Fulham, Lambeth, Wandsworth or the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea) and would like to find out more about Love Food Hate Waste and gain skills and experience in events management, food and sustainability, please get in touch.
