50% of all food wasted? Win 50 copies of #MissionExploreFood for your local library service.
January 10, 2013
With the shocking news that 30-50% of all food around the world is wasted, we’re doing what we can to help educate young people about food waste. Our radical and alternative cookbook includes 159 illustrated challenges, 21 of which focus on waste. Each mission activity encourages young people and families to (re)think about their relationships with food. They’re playfully serious and create fantastic opportunities to learn.
Mission:Explore Food has been praised by a wide range of food experts including Prof. Ian Cook who said that it’s probably the only book I will ever recommend to undergrads, buy for my kids & use as a plate.” Food blogger Home Baked recently reviewed the book saying that “In my opinion, Mission:Explore Food is the answer to just about everything that is wrong with state school food education and I recommend it wholeheartedly” and Emma Freud said “Oh blimey this book is brilliant! Every school in the country should have a copy”.
We can’t afford to give a hard copy to every school in the country, but we can make it available for free to download. Until the end of January you can get your free eBook copy on Amazon and from iBooks.
We’ve also got 50 hardback copies to give away to any library service in the UK. We’ll have to think of a creative way of covering the postage, but all 50 copies with an RRP of £1,000 will to the library of your choice. To be in for a chance just follow these steps:
