London’s Youngest Food Waste Warriors Are Coming!

London’s Youngest Food Waste Warriors Are Coming!

We’re elated to announce one of this years most exciting young social enterprises are coming to grace market lane…

The team at their weekly surplus food stall

Bubble & Squeak have earned a name for themselves by tackling food waste and selling the surplus in their school playground and to the local community. The initiative run by 400 children (aged between 5 – 12) from Old Oak Primary School & The Old Oak Community Centre have already earned themselves the title of ‘Business Launchpad’s Eco Business Of The Year’ and were even featured in Time Out online.

The children with their Business Launchpad Eco Award

The name ‘Bubble & Squeak’ is a nod to the traditional English dish made using leftover vegetables. Emphasising healthy eating, their aim is to take edible surplus food such as fruit and vegetables from local businesses, markets and supermarkets and redistribute it to the local community on a ‘pay as you feel’ basis.

To support their great work this amazing group of young entrepreneurs have created stylish ‘wonky fruit & veg’ artwork inspired by the surplus food they have collected and turned it into seasonal greeting cards for you to buy!

They’ll be having their very own market stall on Friday 15th December from 12.30pm selling their gorgeous cards and incredible festive chutneys, so make sure to get yourselves down and show a little support to our very own food waste warriors!
