the newcastle food partnership - food newcastle
Bind is leading the Sustainability and Waste theme of Newcastle City Council’s Good Food Action Plan, facilitating a cross-sector working group on food waste. We pride ourselves on our strategic work, connecting knowledge and experience from across the city to build best practice that benefits everyone. We also consult with food handlers to help them reduce their food waste, and use the data we gather to understand how we can tackle the city's food waste problem holistically. We bring unique expertise, enthusiasm and fresh initiatives to the waste debate – looking at the environmental, financial and social agendas connected to preventing food waste.
Our current work with the Newcastle Food Partnership is focussed on delivering the outcomes of the ‘No Time to Waste’ report and key targets highlighted in the Good Food Action Plan.
Sainsbury’s - waste less save more
Collaborating with ‘Greening Wingrove’ , a city wide initiative was rolled out in partnership with Sainsburys to raise awareness of the topic with the aim to reduce household food waste. Through an 8 month free workshop programme, larger creative events and collaborative work with Newcastle University and other local projects, bind reached over 1000 people with training and resources and continues to share articles, recipes and tips through an online network.
