Roll up Roll up for free 'waste' food in Bath

Katy Spencer contacted me to tell me about a FREE zero waste event being hosted in Bath on Tuesday.

Green Vision is a network of school environmental groups in Bath & North East Somerset, aiming to be a positive force for change in environmental issues in the B&NES area, as well taking practical action to encourage sustainable practice and prevent damage to the environment.

They aim to be a positive force for change, aiding the transition to a sustainable way of life across Bath and North East Somerset.

Next week, Green Vision are organising a “People’s kitchen event” using surplus food from local shops. They will be feeding people soup and bread made from what would have been food waste from local suppliers around Bath.

It takes place Tuesday 30th August at Green park Station between 12pm and 3pm.

They are hosting this event because they are fed up with the amount of food waste generated by supermarkets in their area, so they want to show what can be done with all this ‘waste’ food!

They’re also going to have people from various local environmental organisations on hand so you can find out more about some of the great things taking place in and around Bath.

You’re invited to bring friends, family and a picnic blanket to Green Park Station (next to the big sainsburys) on Tuesday to enjoy free food, talks and entertainment!

Well I think it sounds wonderful and wish Green Vision and their friends a great turn out.

Are any of you near Bath? It sounds like a great afternoon.

  1. i find the community spirit more alive and stronger in countries with more cohesive geography and demographics; i do hope this zero waste attitude catches on in all affluent countries where waste is casual.
    however waste policies were instituted–it is high time to convince store managements that it no longer is relevant to throw away perfectly usable nutritional items.
    a little generosity and a whole lot of care is solid marketing, thanks for sharing the people love..

    @nadine sellers: isn’t it wonderful Nadine; a real heart warming story. You’re right – it’s time for store management to wake up and realise we can’t keep throwing food away. One day I hope …

    what a shame I have just come back from a weekend in Bath, must admit I didn’t see any signs advertising the event.

  4. Mrs Green says:

    @Sandy: I think advertising is limited unfortunately; let’s hope they have a good turn out; I think about 20 people are attending via facebook, so that’s good!
