'THE BIG LUNCH', 'NOSE TO TAIL' AND 'ENOUGH FOOD IF'

Sunday 2nd June is Global Sharing Day and this year's theme is food. The idea behind it is to get as many people across the world sharing food together, whilst also highlighting the food surplus and waste we produce. There are loads of events going on to get involved with including The Big Lunch, which aims to get people to arrange a meal to share with their neighbours, by holding street parties.

I'm doing my bit by teaming up with Liv from Grub Club to host a lunch as part of 'People Who Share' - a partner of The Big Lunch, who asked us to join tens of millions of people across the world in sharing food with each other for a day, and to think about the tonnes of edible food that get sent to landfills - in the UK alone nearly 7 million tonnes of purchased and edible food goes to waste every year. 

I'm also going to an evening that Action Aid are putting on to talk to bloggers about Enough Food IF, a campaign to reduce and eliminate world hunger (that affects nearly one in six globally). More on that campaign to follow....

Grub Club are also doing more than just our lunch to highlight the issue of food waste. From the 1st - 14th June, Grub Club are hosting a Nose to Tail fortnight. They, like so many of us, are fed up with the amount of edible food that is sent to waste while people are going hungry. So they've teamed up with Ethical Eats and Slow Food London to put on a range of events to get you inspired. They've got foraging and fishing cookery courses, a series of '2 dinners, 1 lunch' pop up restaurants in Peckham, an informal butchery masterclass, learning about the less commonly used cuts of meat, with Hill Street Chews in Hackney, and so much more. 

As a little treat, Grub Club are running a competition to give away a couple of pairs of tickets to their kick off event, It's Ghana be Nasty, this Saturday. For your chance to win, either sign up for Grub Club's newsletter here or share their facebook post here
