What do food traders have to say about food waste?
Posted on November 25th 2015
Over the 2015 festival season we received an enormous amount of help and encouragement from festival organisers, our volunteers, the general public and most importantly the food traders. We couldn’t have achieved what we did without them. As the summer rolled on we began to develop a relationship with certain traders who we encountered again and again. We discovered that – as we hoped – they cared about food waste and were more than eager to help wherever they could.
With the help of our photographer friend Jenny Hardy, we decided to document what they thought of this issue alongside images of some of the food that they gave to us.
We would like to say a massive thank you to all of the food traders who supported and encouraged us this summer, and most importantly thank you for all the food you gave us. It was given to over 2000 organisations, and fed a lot of people who are experiencing food poverty. We look forward to working with you all again very soon.
