Food for thought

Martin Frickel

In the quest to reduce food waste, Booths has partnered up with Martin Frickel, an advocate for the anti-waste movement and Sous Chef at Grasmere’s multi-award winning Forest Side, on his project Wasted.

Wasted is a project brought to life by Martin and some of Cumbria’s leading chefs to highlight the issue of food waste.

Booths will be donating surplus food to the event which will be used to showcase an extraordinary tasting menu using ingredients that would otherwise have gone to waste.

Booths Customer Experience Manager, Colin Porter said: “At Booths we’re constantly looking for ways to reduce food waste and I’m really looking forward to getting involved with Martin’s project Wasted.

Over the last few years we’ve managed to partner each of our stores with a local food bank and we have drop off points at each of our 28 stores to ensure customers can donate with ease.

If there is absolutely nothing wrong with your food, don’t throw it away, you can freeze it for another day or give to someone whose needs are greater.”

Tickets for the event are open to silent bid with a minimum bid price of £150 per person and the money raised from the event will be split between four local charities: Kendal People’s Café, Cumbria Community Foundation, Windermere Food Bank and Growing Well.
