Cauli gosh! We’ve just discovered ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND CAULIFLOWERS going to waste on a farm in Kent!
We’re going on an epic mission to save as many as possible of that tasty caulis from going to waste for charity, and we NEED YOUR HELP. The more people we have, the more we can save!
We’re going gleaning next Wednesday 8th March, near Canterbury in Kent. We’re inviting volunteers to the farm to help save those tasty brassica for the fantastic food poverty charities CFE and FareShare. Witness the colossal waste first-hand, and have a great social day out for a fantastic cause.
The caulis are being wasted because unusually warm weather has led to a glut of cauliflowers around the UK, and supermarkets aren't responding by stocking enough extra. We've just been in a lettuce shortage - so why not switch to cauliflower?
We cover travel expenses from Canterbury, Ashford and nearby – just check with us first. We will aim to run this glean between 10am-4pm (TBC)

You will then be sent more info on the gleaning day, closer to the time. For more info, please contact Kent@feedbackglobal.org
If you can't join us for this glean, please do sign up to our gleaning list - we're gleaning all round the UK, and we'll let you know when gleaning days are coming up near you: http://feedbackglobal.org/gleaning-volunteer-form/
Gleaning Network is part of From Farm to Fork. Run jointly by Feedback and FoodCycle, From Farm to Fork will train more than 4,000 young people to reclaim surplus food through gleaning and then cook this food for vulnerable people.
