Lent is the time to give something up, so why not give up food waste? When the average UK family wastes £60 a month throwing away food and drink that could have been eaten, those 40 days without food waste could save a few quid too. But this kind of abstinence doesn’t have to be dull and drab. 

Pancakes are the perfect vehicle for transforming lingering leftovers. Every cuisine seems to have its own version of the humble pancake and with good reason - they’re so flippin’ versatile and taste delicious. So stick two fork prongs up at food waste and tuck in!


#FlippinFoodWaste 2016

On Pancake Day we hosted a social media competition where we asked people to show how they were #FlippinFoodWaste for Shrove Tuesday. These two lucky winners received a signed copy of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's new book "Love Your Leftovers":

#FlippinFoodWaste 2015 

On 22nd February 2015 we were Flippin’ Food Waste on George Street in Richmond with a local chef pancake cook-off. Alongside South West London Environment Network and with funding from West London Waste Authority, we hosted a carousel of local chefs such as Richmond residents Petersham Nurseries, Chez Lindsay, Plan Zheroes, Les Deux Amies and Food Cycle. Alongside our Food Waste Confessions Booth there was a Food Surplus Sumptuous Cake Stall, with proceeds going to Richmond Food Bank.
