Sands Wealth Management volunteering at The Real Junk Food Project

[Date: 14/05/19]

Today the Sands Wealth Management Team spent the day volunteering for The Real Junk Food Project (TRJFP) and aiding their catering branch ‘Zelig’. Zelig caters to events of any size, (including our last quarterly team meeting in April) using perfectly good waste food acquired through TRJFP’s network – simultaneously tackling global food waste, and raising funds for TRJFP.

Our team first spent the morning training at the Wakefield Sharehouse, and then made over 500 sandwiches and helped prepare cooked food as part of a large buffet catering for 270 people at The Light Leeds, Vue Cinema. All leftover food was then taken home by the Vue Cinema staff, resulting in 150kg of surplus food not being wasted.
