Feeding 1k event in the Czech Republic

17 Sep 2013

Our team in Prague donated essential ingredients and surplus food to support Save Food's Feed One Thousand event.

Last week, hundreds of residents in Prague queued in the city’s famous Wenceslav Square to receive a free lunch of vegetable curry made entirely from either donated or surplus food.

The Feed One Thousand event was supported by Tesco, and organised by Save Food, a group that campaigns to combat food waste in the Czech Republic. The ingredients used to make the curry  consisted entirely of food that was either donated, or surplus food that would otherwise have gone to waste.

Our team in Prague proudly supported the event by donating essential ingredients, as well as surplus food such as rice and lentils. In total over 1000 meals were prepared.

Our ambition is to lead in reducing food waste globally. A key part of this is our commitment to doing even more to minimise waste in our own operations and reduce food waste in all our stores. We will also continue to work to reduce food waste across our value chain globally through effective partnerships with our producers and suppliers and by helping our customers.
