At the end of the summer term (30 June/1 July) a team of 40 staff and students from across campus came together to create the RAWKUS collection. Due to this amazing work nearly 4 tonnes was collected and given to 9 local charities including Carriers of Hope, Coventry Food Bank and Coventry Real Junk Food Project.
RAWKUS is a project that was created 4 years ago, and is currently being led by Warwick Climate Reality Campus Corps, to save food surplus from kitchens across campus when students leave halls at the end of term/year. Over 20 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.
This was only made possible by having volunteers willing to spend some time to help. We are asking all staff and students who are available on 15th September to come and support this fantastic initiative and save good food from being wasted. Please sign up for the RAWKUS event on 15 September 2018.
If you are interested in joining our team for future collections please sign up to our RAWKUS mailing list.
