This event is part of a series of events commissioned by the North London Waste Authority titled “Waste Less, Save More Big Free Lunch” events. Their purpose is to reduce the amount of food wasted by households over a 12 month period (around £680 worth on average) by engaging with the public through interactive roadshows. The day will consist of our partner organisation, Events of Excellence, preparing free meals for around 1000 members of the public using ingredients up to the value of £680 to demonstrate what can be done with what a household wastes in a year. There will also be cooking workshops and demonstrations to highlight how to reduce the amount of food waste produced at home. This food will be prepared off site but cooked on site using gas burners in a 6x6m marquee and will be distributed in biodegradable plastic tubs. In addition to this, both Waste Watch and the local Council / NLWA will have small information stands and will be engaging with attendees over the course of the day on issues surrounding food waste. The event is also designed to help improve community cohesion by providing a focal point for activity at lunchtime in the area in an outdoor space where people can relax with free food. Waste Watch successfully completed a series of these events in West London earlier this year, serving between 800 and 1200 portions per event.
