One-third of food produced globally for us to eat is lost or wasted, which amounts to approximately 1.3 billion tonnes per year.
10 million tonnes of food and drink is wasted in UK each year, 60% of this could be avoided.
When we waste food we also waste land, water, diesel used in farming, packaging, energy to refrigerate and so much more.
We want to rescue surplus and unsold food destined for landfill. We want to offer it to ALL members of our community.
Our mission is simple – to feed people, not landfill!!
It’s about inclusion, community and sustainability, all strong messages from the early ideals of the Garden City Movement.
We want an inclusive place for everyone in Letchworth to come to. Let’s tackle the issue of food waste together!
