Hungry For Change

Food waste represents one of the most significant environmental and economic issues: a third of all produced food on a global scale is thrown away annually. The creation and development of an urban regeneration project will persuade the community to change their behaviors whilst simultaneously explore social cohesion and well-being: it is more than just providing food, people’s well-being is a priority: saving good food from going to waste and supporting the homeless and vulnerable around Manchester and the UK, significantly due to the current pandemic fuelling an already heightening issue of homelessness. This issue of homelessness prevents food security for the vulnerable that engenders severe difficulties and dissociation from a regular, healthy diet that satisfies nutrition and maintains adequate health. The concept of food waste and prevention of food surplus will demonstrate to be a powerful tool to raise awareness of sustainable development at the community level through recovering recycled food and creating compost to locally grow food for human consumption.
