Bringing the multicultural communities of Birmingham together to share the joys of cooking and raise awareness of food waste.
It’s not just an environmental cost. Hungry mouths are the most stark examples of food waste.
270k tonnes of the food that goes to waste each year is still edible, and enough for 650 million meals!
And yet 8.4 million people in the UK are struggling to find their next meal.
BrumUnity will bring together young, diverse communities in Birmingham to cook with food that would have otherwise been thrown away and redistribute this back to those who do not have enough to eat.
We want to share the knowledge and joy of cooking together, encourage our young people to engage with excessive food waste and give back to those most in need in our community.
BrumUnity is part of the UpRising Birmingham Environmental Leadership Programme 2017/18.
