Last year we had the pleasure to host the Lambeth City Council in our studio to help them film their food waste campaign. We are strong believers in making a difference in our society and we think that the Lambeth City Council is really taking a step forward with this campaign.
About the food waste campaign
Lambeth Council’s Public Health and Environmental Services teams have joined forces with their waste contractor Veolia and The People’s Fridge to create a suite of new resources to help residents make the most of their food.
The team at The People’s Fridge have put together a local food network guide for Lambeth residents containing top tips for turning common leftovers into healthy dishes. There’s also a feast of information on local projects and community cafes working with surplus food.
Veolia and Lambeth Council have produced some informative videos that show how to cook delicious, nutritious food while reducing food waste, starring local resident Valcie Mcintosh from Papa’s Café in Brixton. Valcie showcases three of her favourite recipes that not only use up commonly left over foods, but are also tasty and healthy.
Lambeth’s Cabinet Member for Healthier and Stronger Communities, Jim Dickson, is a fan: “Food cooked from scratch is not only healthier than ready meals, it’s often cheaper, too. Valcie’s recipes show how easy it can be to make food that’s really tasty and good for you without having to spend too much. And I’ll certainly be using some of her tips on keeping things fresher for longer and reducing waste.”
