Find out why Martin had 200 kilos of parsnips in his bedroom…
Our star Gleaning Coordinator Martin delivered this amazing TEDx talk in Bath this month to over one thousand young people. Watch Martin talk us through his journey to becoming a food waste campaigner – including how he ended up picking his way through parsnips just to reach his desk.
The parsnips may be long gone to great causes, but Martin has been hard at work all year with his colleagues and over 1000 volunteers, gleaning fruit and veg that would otherwise go to waste and getting it to hungry mouths.
The gleaning season is over for this year, but that doesn’t mean we’re giving up on the fight against food waste. There’s still so much to do – from organising your own ‘Feeding the 5000’ to serve up some delicious food waste solutions, to joining our campaigning for supermarkets to simplify their date labels.
As always, the best place to start is by taking the food waste pledge – pledging to do your bit to reduce your own food waste and calling on retailers and businesses to do theirs.
