Since my original article, Norwich’s War On Food Waste, was published a lot has changed, so I thought it was time high time for an update.
First, to recap, when the original article was published in November 2015 the seeds had been sown for the formation of an organisation with three main aims:
- To collect food that would otherwise be wasted by retailers due to it having passed it’s sell-by or best-before date, or as a result of over purchasing.
- To bring this food to an accessible centrally located unit to be weighed, sorted and recorded.
- To coordinate the redistribution of such food to organisations helping to tackle food poverty in the city.
