Veg cities is Cambridge Sustainable Food’s latest campaign led by food and farming charity Sustain in partnership with the wider Peas Please initiative. In this campaign we aim to increase the availability and consumption of vegetables across the city. We will be working with local businesses, restaurants, cafes and community organisations to promote the benefits of eating your veg! We will also be aiming to reduce veg waste in Cambridge, hosting cookery workshops and spreading the word about the benefits of growing your own. Stay tuned for upcoming events and news!
Cambridge Sustainable Food is working closely with the Cambridge City Council Recycling Team and other organisations on the Love Food Hate Waste campaign. CSF promotes the campaign at stalls and through our Cambridge #PumpkinRescue Festival. Following our 2016 Festival successes, we are pleased to be planning another festival for October 2017. The festival hosts many fun and free events across Cambridge to encourage people to think about food waste and save Halloween pumpkins which are destined for landfill.
Cambridge Sustainable Food has signed up for the national Sustainable Fish Cities campaign, run by Sustain. We have successfully signed up 26 organisations and businesses to sign the pledge stating that they will avoid unsustainable fish from the MSC’s “Fish to Avoid” list. Due to time constraints, this project if currently not a CSF priority, but we hope to put a greater focus on this project in the future! You can find more information on this project on the national campaign site here.
