CRUMBS is up and running!

I was very proud and excited yesterday to launch the CRUMBS project, which I've helped to organise along with Southampton City Council and local charity, SCRATCH. The project takes in-date food that's being thrown away by supermarkets and redistributes it to our city's most disadvantaged residents. In stopping this waste from going to landfill CRUMBS will also benefit our local environment and reduce emissions. We're also hoping that the project will create 50 new voluntary and paid jobs and will provide training opportunities for young people at local businesses. Well done to everyone who has been involved so far in this fantastic initiative!
