Tristram Stuart, the food waste scandal – May 21 @ 7.30pm – 9.30pm

We’re very excited that Tristram Stuart, the charismatic global food waste champion, founder of Feed Back (which includes Feeding the 5000, The Pig Idea and The Gleaning Network) is coming to Cambridge to talk about the global food waste scandal and what can be done about it. He’s a great speaker (see his TED talk here) and if you haven’t read his book `’Food Waste: the global food scandal”, we’d recommend it. To accompany Tristram’s talk there will be short presentations from local food waste organisations Food Cycle and the East of England Gleaning Network, the City Council Food Waste Team and Cambridge Carbon Footprint’s June World War II food rationing challenge team. Cambridge Sustainable Food will also be launching the local Love Food Hate Wastecampaign that evening. There will be delicious nibbles made from food that would otherwise be wasted, provided by the Food Cycle team. Do put the date in your diaries! This is a free event organised by Cambridge Carbon Footprint. Not to be missed! Part of the Eat Cambridge Festival.
