Important Info for Food traders – Country Show 2019

Dear Food Traders

This year we are trying to achieve ZERO food waste and so will be collecting all excess, unwanted food from you and donating it to those that need it most.

This includes prepared food, ambient food and fresh goods.  Basically anything that might have otherwise ended up in the bin.

With the help of Brixton Peoples Kitchen, Lambeth Food, Compliments of the house and Olio we have put together an A team of food waste heroes to help us augment the process and make it super easy.

Donating your leftover food couldn’t be simpler.

First we need  you to sign a food donors agreement which can be found HERE.  This covers you for donating and takes less than a minute.

Then we would ask you to download the Olio app for Iphone or Android which allows you to instantly post leftover food for collection.  That’s it. Super simple.

Please do this now so save time onsite.

If you have any questions, please email me or speak to one of the Food Waste team when onsite who will be signing people up.  They will be roaming the site on Friday / Saturday during setup to sign people up or you can find them in the Food rescue area of the eco village.

Olio donations are considered in our Green Trader award and so could help you win a free pitch at next year’s show.

Thanks in advance for helping us become more sustainable.

See you next Friday.

Once this design was exposed to the general public Dre’s Designs shrugs became in high demand with friends and strangers alike wanting an item of clothing which they knew was exclusive.
