Cambridge Sustainable Food are excited to announce that we have been awarded £30,000 from Sainsbury’s to support our waste reduction projects in 2017-2018.
The support from Sainsbury’s comes as part of their Waste Less, Save More campaign, which has set out to reduce household food waste. The supermarket will be investing £1 million into community initiatives aimed at food waste reduction and we have been chosen as one of their ‘Discovery Communities’!
The investment will be used to support a number of exciting initiatives over the next year. This includes looking into the installation of a community fridge (like this one here), employing a Food Waste Champion to spread the message about food waste, working with OLIO to get local businesses signed up to the scheme and running a food waste challenge with up to £100 free equipment for participants.
Keep an eye on our website to keep up to date with all these great projects as they develop.
