50% of all food wasted? Win 50 copies of #MissionExploreFood for your local library service.

January 10, 2013

We’ve got £1,000 worth of Mission:Explore Books to give to a local library service.
Very wasteful caterpillar

Leave packaging behind

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.

Waste chapter

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”.

Dirty food

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.

Eat the whole thing

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:

1. Write a blog post that mentions the free Mission:Explore Food eBook. It Feel free to take pictures from this website and words from this press release.

2. Comment on this post including a link to your blog post and the name of the library service/network that you would give the books to. We’ll give you a personal copy too.. so it’s 51 copies really.

3. On February 1st we’ll randomly pick one winner from everyone that’s done steps 1+2. The name of the winner will be blogged on this website and as a comment on this post.

Good luck!

    What a fabulous idea! The ‘Mission: Explore Food’ book is a great way to teach children about food and the choices they make and I feel that my local community network (Mill Road) could really benefit from fifty copies of the book. I have written a post on my blog all about the book and why I think it would be brilliant for the local area to receive them and who should receive the books:
    As you will see, rather than nominate one specific library service -because ours closed down a few years ago :( – I am nominating that the books be shared between twenty different local groups that I think would particularly benefit. These include primary schools, local kids activity groups and some community groups aimed at families.

    Please keep up the good work and creating Mission: Explore books, the ones you have produced so far are brilliant.

    Keeping my fingers crossed! :)
