Why are more and more people eating supermarket waste? … and why does our food system generate so much waste anyway?
We invite you to a talk by Charlie Spring about her research on efforts to feed surplus food to people. You'll learn about the causes of food waste throughout the food supply chain and hear about solutions for creating an environmentally sound and socially just food system.
Charlie will talk about research for her PhD on efforts to feed surplus food to people, from foodbanks to 'food waste cafes'. Her research has taken her from Manchester convents to anti-hunger activists and anarchist chefs in North America.
About the speaker
Charlie spent her teens in Presteigne and came back to mid-Wales in her mid-twenties to try living off the land.
She moved to Manchester to run a sustainability engagement programme at Salford University. She's now in her second year of a PhD exploring 'surplus food redistribution in the North of England'. She recently completed a Churchill Fellowship to the US and Canada to learn about their well-established history of food banking and anti-hunger advocacy.
