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. 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 is only made possible by having volunteers willing to spend some time to help. 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.
