BBP Strategical Workshop

BBP workshop Best Before Project

As all the organizations, BBP has a structure and needs medium and long term plans. That is why we decided to attend a workshop that Matt kindly organized for us!
Will it work? Will we go ahead with our mission? Only time can tell, but we are faithful and will put all our effort to make it happen!

Vegetables saved from Landfill!

BBP food waste redistribution

Hello everybody!

Although we are focused on "Best Before" labeled food, sometimes it happens that we occour in large quantities of other kinds of food that needs to be saved!

Here is an example!
about 700kg of tasty vegetables saved from landfill thanks to the joint action of BBP and Feeding 5K, and distributed to CFE (Community Food Enterprise) and to Rad Cross

Following there are some pictures of the action (sorry for the quality!):

Goodbye Tottenham storage!

BBP storage Tottenham Hale

Yes, we had to vacate our garage in Tottenham Hale.This storage has been our first, and we used it for 3 years; loads of food passed through it and the last stored food has been taken by Red Cross, Woodberry Downs Baptist Church and some by people who run the kitchen in Harlesden

Closing this storage is not a simple logistical matter for us. Makes us think that is already years that we are going on with our project, and we need to be dynamic and focus on the main goal of Best Before Project, although it's not easy and obstacles and changes are constantly incoming.

A changemaker’s Journey – Hilary Whitwell

I met Hilary Whitwell when I was picking up food and snacks for the jam from the Best Before Project, where she is one of the core organisers, and we had a chance to talk in the traffic.

Stop, think and don’t throw away – donate!

news BBP Best Before Project food waste Diageo charities redistribution

More and more companies are joining the efforts to reduce the massive amount of unnecessary food waste we currently create in our society.

We’d like to thank, among others, Diageo (www.diageo.co.uk) for taking the time to stop, think and donate the whole of the stock from their on-site mock convenience store to Best Before Project for redistribution among charities in need – the charities very extremely grateful for the items! Many companies simply throw unwanted stuff away…so well done and thanks again!
