Food Route Local
Through European Green Capital Funding we have been able to create a simple text message service so that suppliers (including food retailers, cafes and restaurants) can let organisations know about the surplus items that they have, and then arrange to donate it to those that respond to the text. It will be allocated on a first come first served basis and the recipient will collect the food at a mutually agreed time.
This simple, innovative idea will help with the challenge of reducing food waste in Bristol, cut down on the carbon emissions that are produced when food is thrown away and feed some of our most vulnerable citizens with good quality food.
