Our Workshops

Our Beginning

Started in january 2016, Leftover Lovers was initially a 'food waste' project between friends. Running 'Munchie Mondays', a public event that ran in public parks. The events attracted 35-40 people, and were an inspiration to feed and discuss food waste further and expand the mission to fight food waste. It was from the conversations with the public, food waste organisations and local businesses that 'Leftover Lovers' was conceived.
