Surplus Feast 1st December, 12 – 6, General Gordon Square

  Posted on 8th November 2018

Bringing people together to fill bellies, not bins

We are delighted to announce that we are hosting another Surplus Feast as part of the Woolwich Winter Warmer on 1st December in General Gordon Square

According to the UN, about a third of the food produced for human consumption is either wasted or lost. This is roughly 1.3 billion tonnes EVERY YEAR!  To give you an idea of the scale, just 1 quarter of this food could feed 870 million people.  There’s been loads of awareness around food waste recently, but there’s still way too much perfectly good food going in the bin.

Using surplus food from the wonderful FareShare, who re-distribute surplus food from the food industry before it’s even reached the supermarket floor, and Plan Zheroes who work with Borough Market, and Paul Rhodes Bakery, who donate all their surplus bread, we’ll be cooking up a storm to serve to the hungry public.    This will be our 5th feast and at the last one we served over 700 meals, so we will need help.  Gerneal Gordon Square
