Shrewsbury Food Hub will hold their annual Walk Against Waste is on Sunday 23 April. 

This years event coincides with World Earth Day weekend. Every step you take will help to raise awareness of how reducing food waste can have a positive impact on the environment and raise funds to help the Food Hub rescue surplus food for social and environmental good. Last year, the Hub’s volunteers rescued 175 tonnes of good food from the bin – mitigating 451 tonnes of greenhouse gasses and enough for 417,859 meals.

The walk will follow the loop of the River Severn and take in six of the iconic bridges that are gateways into the town including the English and Welsh bridges. The walk is a relaxed and scenic challenge that everyone can get involved in. Do it alone, in a group or link up with others on the day. The route, which will take about 1.5 hours to walk, is buggy and wheelchair friendly.

“Michael Carding, Shrewsbury Food Hub volunteer who came up with the idea for the walk, said: “Our vision is a community where food is valued, not wasted. As well as helping to raise awareness of what we do and much needed funds, this event is a lot of fun. We hope lots of people will join us on the day – the more the merrier.”
