In order to reduce food waste, the Students’ Union outlets have been working alongside student volunteers to donate food to the Hackney Winter Night Shelter
that would otherwise be thrown away at the end of the day. Back in April 2017, we launched the Too Good to Go
app on campus, an innovative social enterprise that aims to put an end to food waste in the hospitality industry. It allows students and staff to buy food at a cheaper price than usual from both our outlets and local restaurants. As well as this, Students' Union outlets are currently looking for companies that recycle coffee grains, which would otherwise end up in landfill. Following student feedback, we will work alongside the local recycling companies to place food waste bins on campus and lobby the University to do the same in halls of residence.
