Manchester Friends of the Earth have an active campaign group who from time to time work on a range of issues around sustainable food including; reducing food waste, local food, ‘real food’, Fairtrade, and other aspects of low carbon food.
Food waste or food loss is food that is discarded or lost or uneaten. The causes of food waste or loss are numerous, and occur at the stages of production, processing, retailing and consumption.
Our Food Group is taking a break from holding meetings for a while, so in the interim please come along to Full Group meetings held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month instead.
