Food waste is a major issue. We throw away 7.2 million tonnes of food and drink from our homes every year in the UK, the majority of which could have been eaten. Today people across the Southwark will struggle to feed themselves and their families. Redundancy, illness, benefit delay, debt and paying for the additional costs of heating during winter are just some of the reasons why people go hungry. Southwark free food group connects people who are giving and getting food items for free in their own towns. It's completely free to join. This group is open to all residents of London borough of Southwark who want to stop the growing crisis of food poverty in Southwark.
