RAWKUS Food Collection

RAWKUS is a project that was created 4 years ago to save food surplus from kitchens across campus when students leave halls at the end of term/year.

We are asking all students, staff and friends who are available on the 30th June and 1st July to come and support this fantastic initiative and save good food from being wasted.
