Virtual talks are set to be held to promote good food projects which strengthen communities.

The next two ‘Owl’ talks, run by the Oundle Waste Less project, will focus on food-themed initiatives which create positive outcomes.

Tomorrow (January 19) Mary Clear CBE will talk about ‘Incredible Edible Todmorden’ – an urban gardening project in West Yorkshire, which uses growing food as a way to build a stronger, more connected community.

On February 24, during the ‘Good Food Ideas’ section, the spotlight will shift to projects in the area with environmental objectives.

A focus of the talk will be Second Helpings, Stamford’s community project to reduce food waste.Volunteer led, it is feeling the effects of the current pandemic - numbers at the lunches have doubled but cash donations towards the cost of meals have halved.

Members of Peterborough Environment City Trust will also talk about their Community Fridges.

The talks, which are part of the Oundle Waste Less project run by Transition Oundle, provide inspiration to minimise eco-impact by creating opportunities for re-use, repair, refilling and waste reduction.

Both of the talks will be held on Zoom and start at 7.30pm.
