Windrush Square, Brixton Next Stop for Feed the 1,000 Roadshow

The Feed the 1,000 roadshow makes its way to Lambeth

The next stop on the Feed the 1,000 roadshow will be Windrush Square, Brixton on Friday 23 November between 11.30am and 3.30pm.

The event, organised by Recycle Western Riverside in partnership with the London Borough of Lambeth, aims to show how to reduce food waste and give tips and recipes to help residents save money.

Love Food Hate Waste research has found that the average UK family throws away £600 of good food each year and this equates to around 1,000 uneaten meals.  To visually demonstrate just how much food that is, Recycle Western Riverside plans to feed one thousand Lambeth residents using the same amount of money that the average family spends on food that is wasted every year.

If you are interested in volunteering at this event, please contact Theresa Greene: Theresa.greene@wastewatch.org.uk
