From Friday 8th – Sunday 10th July, we’re hosting a pop-up run by ReLondon to educate and inspire Londoners to reduce waste and spread the word about the impact that food waste has on the planet. Expect a range of events from cookery workshops to stalls and competitions, all designed to empower you to enjoy a more sustainable approached to buying, storing, eating – and even growing – your food.

After a huge drop in household food waste during the pandemic, food waste has now shot back up to 2018 levels (WRAP data), and as part of a collaboration with surplus food app and social impact company, Too Good to Go, two giant sculptures will be on display at Angel Central, to bring attention to the impact that waste has on the environment.

Arielle Vetro, ReLondon’s campaign manager for Food Wave, commented: “The Food Wave campaign is all about encouraging a new generation of food activists, highlighting the connection between the way we grow, eat and throw away our food, and its impact on the planet. We can’t wait to launch the pop-up in Islington as it will give us the chance to have conversations with young north Londoners and find out how they’re feeling about the climate crisis, and what they know about how food directly affects it.”
