Our surplus food project, Bubble & Squeak, is through to the finals of the 2018 Food Waste Awards

March 6, 2018 in News by Old Oak Centre

Bubble & Squeak, our surplus food project has made it through to the finals of the 2018 Food Waste Awards in the ‘change makers international’ category.

Extraordinarily, the UK throws away a staggering £13bn of food each year! This partnership between Old Oak Community Centre and Old Oak Primary school, aims to educate children about food and help them tackle food waste.

The children sell surplus and sometimes ever-so-slightly wonky produce to parents in the playground on a ‘pay as you feel basis’.

This month, some of the children were visited by Metro Online at their After School Club where they were interviewed while making cakes for a fund raiser. Our food heroes, chatted away to the journalist about their project and were perfectly at ease in front of the camera.

5-year-old Nylah, said: “We sell food that people think is no good. They would throw it away but we can use it to make cakes and loads of different food.”

The initiative also featured in Time Out’s 29 small ways to save the planet article.
