Food Waste is one of the biggest impacts on climate change, with a staggering number of 1.3 Billion Tonnes of Food being thrown away globally per year equating to 8% of global greenhouse gases. It is not only food that is wasted but also the energy produced during the production, processing, transporting and cooking stages, having an even larger impact on the natural environment around us.
Within the UK, 70% of food waste is produced from households alone, with 18-34-year olds throwing away proportionately more food than any other age group. Students aged 18-25 were the most concerned about climate change but didn’t know the impact that Food Waste could have on the planet.
In 2027 where gas is rationed and food is becoming scarce, unaffordable and more and more people and its production unsustainable, Foodships is a green powered and accessible service that aims to provide healthy, tasty and nutritious meals for those in need by transforming food from students that would otherwise be thrown away.
The service and meals created can build better relationships through engaging communities inspires a social and behavioural change for individuals surrounding the topic of food waste. Foodships focuses on reducing food waste to better the environment and teaches users how every part of a fruit or vegetable can be eaten instead of being thrown away through progressive and unexpected weekly menus.
