Blog: LSE ‘Sustainable Food and Beveridge’ Event

By Daisy Nicholls 

On Saturday, I was kindly invited along to LSE’s Sustainable Food and Beveridge event to speak about the work we’re doing here at The Felix Project to help tackle food waste and food poverty in London.

This event was part of the LSE Festival: Beveridge 2.0, a series of events rethinking the welfare state for the 21st century and the global context.

It was a great opportunity to learn more about the ways that different charities and organisations are working to make food more sustainable in our society.

Speakers included Jeanne Firth from Grow Dat Youth Farm, Katharine Fox from WRAP talking about their new TRiFOCAL programme, Maciek Kacprzyk from Get Wonky who is reducing food waste by making surplus fruit into tasty juice and Elisabetta Aurino speaking about her research into food poverty and how it impacts a child’s development and learning.

I even got to try some delicious samples of sustainable food: Day Old Eats had on offer day-old pastries which they rescue and sell (with the profits going to charity), LSE catering had made some yummy vegan snacks and Crunchy Critters were handing out insects to try!

It was so interesting to hear other approaches to tackling food waste and food poverty and gave me the chance to spread the word about the work we do at Felix – redistributing over 15 tonnes of surplus food a week - and how anyone can help with this by volunteering with us.
