Feeding minds not bins with
Did you know that one third of all food that is produced gets thrown away? This waste costs a lot of money and damages our environment. More importantly, just a quarter of all the food we throw away would feed every single hungry person in the world.
Every Thursday from 2.30pm to 3.30pm you will have a chance to purchase some fresh food at our market stall which has been substantially reduced. Just by using this food Woodfield will be saving 8.4 tons of CO2e per year (or 114 giant pandas!)
The Real Junk Food Project Doncaster has qualified professionals who assess the safety of all our food. All food delivered to school will be of good quality and safe to eat. Some of the food might not look perfect. Fruit or vegetables might be wonky, or quite ripe. You may also find products that are past their date. To understand why we have provided you with this food it is useful to explain a bit more about the 2 most common dates that are used on products:
All dates aside, how you store your food is much more important to its freshness and safety. More information is provided by the Food Standards Agency: https://www.food.gov.uk/science/microbiology/use-by-and-best-before-dates
The Real Junk Food Project Doncaster – Woodfield Market Stall opens for business at 2.30pm on Thursday 22nd November 2018 in the KS2 Playground, we hope to see you there!
