'Feed the 1,000' Community Picnic

Saturday 5th August, 11am-3pm
Where: Cathedral Square, Peterborough  PE1 1XB
Who: PECT, Cross Keys Homes, FareShare, WestRaven Big Local,
What: Community Picnic

Turns out there is such a thing as a free lunch - and one with extra tips to take away too!
This community picnic in Cathedral Square will attempt to feed 1,000 people to highlight how much food is wasted by the average family each year. The event will dish out portions of delicious food - all created from ingredients that are often thrown away.

PECT has been chosen to be a Sainsbury’s ‘Discovery Community’ as part of the supermarket’s Waste less, Save more campaign. The Waste Less, Save More team and volunteers will be on hand to serve up advice and recipe ideas for using leftovers and cutting food bills.

Visitors will also be encouraged to share their own ideas on reducing food waste. There’s no need to book, just turn up on the day!
