Past events:

16 March | A Super-Kale-Fragalistic, Waste-free Day Out

The North West team will be joined by university students, community organisations and military veterans to head to a farm near Ormskirk on Saturday 16 March, to rescue armfuls of the superfood kale, one of the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet. It’s REALLY good for you – so we really can’t let it go to waste! We’re going out to pick as much kale as we can manage to pass on to our friends at FareShare for redistribution to communities across Merseyside and Greater Manchester.  We’re being joined by chef Michelle O’Dwyer from BayTree Catering and our volunteers Helena and Hannah who are going to make a delicious picnic lunch for our gatherers as a reward for all the hard work.

5 March | Surplus pumpkin lunch at Knowsley Third Sector network

Lucy Antal, our North West Regional Coordinator, will be preparing a delicious surplus pumpkin-based lunch for the Knowsley Third Sector network meeting on Tuesday 5 March. A chance for the local, voluntary and community sector in Knowsley to come together and share ideas, Lucy will be talking about our plans to create food skills workshop and training opportunities for groups in the local area.
