Matthew Unerman started this petition to Durham University

We are all guilty of throwing away food, and living in catered accomadation doesn't make this any easier.

In May 2019, I protested Castle College to get them to implement a food-waste reduction scheme. In just 2 weeks we saved around 90 meals and raised over £100 for charity!

This year it's back as 'Embrace the Waste'!

What is it?

  • Students not on a meal package can eat excess food from college for a donation of at least £1.50, going towards the JCR charity

Why is it?

  • We are all guilty of throwing away too much food, and catered accommodation doesn’t make it any easier.
  • You get a varied, cooked meal for 1/2 the price of a meal deal
  • It is a great way to raise money for charity
  • It's the tastiest way to reduce your carbon footprint

I am meeting with the Head of Catering for Durham University next week, and I want to show him that there is support for this scheme, so please sign and share this petition.

Together we can make a big difference, one meal at a time!
