Taste not waste

Taste not waste

17 billion portions of fruit are wasted each year. We think that's pretty crazy. We also know that four out of five kids still aren't getting their five a day, which is why we've started a project with help from 'A Taste of Freedom' and our friends at Fareshare to get unwanted fruit to places where it will be put to very good use.

We'll be popping into East Sheen Primary School once a week and making smoothies with a big pile of fruit that would have otherwise been thrown away. The kids will get to learn all about fruit, chopping it up and making it into smoothies on our very own invention, the Blendavenda. Take a peek at what we'll be getting up to here. 

If you'd like to get your school involved, you can find out more here and have a look at our handy little guide to spread the Taste not Waste message.
