Last week we launched our exciting new project - taste not waste. Our Lou, Rich and Jojo headed down to East Sheen Primary School with a merry band of helpers from innocent, the guys from food waste group A Taste of Freedom and Zac Goldsmith MP.
There, we turned 170 portions of fruit that would have otherwise gone to waste into delicious smoothies for the kids, and will be doing so every Friday for the next 7 weeks.
There was lots of (supervised) chopping
A little bit of fooling around
Prentending we'd won the World Cup
Smoothie supping aplenty
And sitting on benches that were clearly too small for us.
You can track the progress of the project here via the magic of our very own waste-o-meter, and if you fancy doing a similar thing at your school we've put together a handy guide with some hints and tips on how to go about it. We'd love for you to give it a go yourselves and help save even more perfectly good portions of fruit from going to waste.
