Doing Good With Food

This event has now passed.

Our panel discussion theme is Doing Good with Food, Sustainability and Food Waste.  Our panel will discuss food as a source for good, how we should use resources wisely for sustainability, how we package food so we don’t damage our planet and what we can do to eliminate food waste.

We will explore what working with food can teach us.  What can we discover from our elders? What can we pass on to younger people? We will consider the answers to these questions and much more during the event.

Panellists include:

Alex Head
Owner and founder of Social Pantry

Anita Kerai
Presenter for RETURN TO KENYA on Amazon Prime Video and author of cookbook FLAVOURS OF KENYA

Joey O’Hare

This event is one in a series of events this week from Women In the Food Industry, a pioneering new initiative championing and discussing the issues facing women in the food industry.

Proceeds from this event will go to Fare Share

Fare Share are the UK’s largest charity fighting hunger and food waste.

They believe that no good food should go to waste so they redistribute surplus food to charities that turn it into meals for vulnerable people. Last year they redistributed enough food for 36.7 million meals. But it’s about more than meals. The organisations they supply food to are places that provide life changing support, as well as lunch and dinner.
