RAWKUS is a project that was created 5 years ago to save food surplus from kitchens across campus when students leave halls at the end of term/year. Tonnes of food and other items have been saved from ending up in the bin and have been given to local charities and food banks. During the Easter collection this year 1.2 tonnes was diverted from being wasted.
This is only made possible by having volunteers willing to spend some time to help. We are asking all students and staff who are available on the 29th and 30th June (9am-6pm) to come and help us to collect the food surplus and other items from halls of residence across campus. Please support this fantastic initiative, saving good food from being wasted.
