Get ready for festival vibes, great music and helping to stop food waste, because now we are putting the three together and moving into the realm of collecting surplus food waste from festivals!
This summer we will be partnering with Brockwell Live to help cut down on food waste at their collective of independent festivals that will take place between 26th May – 11th June in Brockwell Park and we are beyond excited to finally be sharing this project with you!
Festivals are always fun but not many people see the damaging effects they can have on food waste.
According to EighthPlate in an article by FestivalPro.com, around 400 TONNES OF FOOD is wasted at festivals in the UK every year, that’s equivalent to about 1 MILLION MEALS! So, we’ve come together this year with Brockwell Live to try and put a stop to unnecessary food waste at festivals this season.
How will this work?
Brockwell Live will cover a broad range of music and culture in Brockwell Park.
Their festival series consists of:
Project 6 (26th May),
Wide Awake (27th May), Cross The Tracks (28th May),
City Splash (29th May),
Brockwell Bounce (31st May),
Mighty Hoopla (3rd & 4th June) and
Lambeth Country Show (10th & 11th June).
At the festivals we’ll be at, we will be spreading awareness of our charity and what we do to others and then in the evening we will collect the surplus food from various food traders, where we will then deliver it straight to those in need! It couldn’t be simpler!
NOW ALL WE NEED IS YOU!
