The Hornbeam and This is Rubbish are working together to run Waltham Forest’s Best Before Project. We are working with anti food waste campaigning and redistribution organisation ‘Best Before‘ to raise awareness among local food retailers that it is not illegal to sell food that is passed its best before date.
To help us reach out to people in the community we are seeking passionate Food Rescuer Volunteers across Waltham Forest. They are working
Volunteers will encourage and support retailers to sell food passed its Best Before date at a reduced price; showing we can reduce waste and also educating their customers. Shops will also be able to donate food which they don’t want to sell, to other projects such as food banks and the People’s Kitchen and E17’s Disco Soup.
We’re looking for enthusiastic people to help run collections, engage shops, help with distribution, or run awareness-raising events.
