Waste Not, Want Not 

**We are looking for lead volunteers for this project for the 2018-19 academic year. If you would like to enquire about being lead on this project please contact Kelly**

Set up by a Medic Undergraduate student in 2015, students help redistribute foodstuffs from the Students' Union catering outlets to local homelessness charities. This provides a treat to people in need and makes valuable use of food that would otherwise be binned. Volunteers also help minimise the Students' Union overall waste. 

We are now welcoming applications for the 2018-19 academic year for general and lead volunteers.

More info here if you want to apply for a lead volunteer position.

When: Wednesdays and Fridays at 6pm
