We are continuing our partnership with 8th Plate after our successful pilot at this years Bluedot festival, where approximately one tonne of food was salvaged and diverted to a number of refuges, homeless shelters, soup kitchens and food banks in the Greater Manchester area.
8th Plate co-ordinate with traders to collect surplus food and redistribute it to the people around the UK who need it, significantly reducing the food waste at your festival. Green Events have committed to working with 8th Plate across their 2019 event calendar.
