The #LeedsBigLunch will be taking place in Victoria Gardens, Leeds (opposite the art gallery and library) between 12pm and 2pm on Friday 26th May 2017
This free event is being held as part of the Leeds Indie Food Festival 2017 and has been derived from a wider project known as 'The Big Lunch Neighbourhood', which was created in 2009 by the Eden Project. As we all know, a working lunch behind your desk is often rather all too appealing, however the main aim of the project and indeed, the #LeedsBigLunch is to encourage us to move away from those all too familiar working lunches and take the time out to communicate with our friends, colleagues and network with the wider community.
Collaborating with the Eden Project on this event is The Real Junk Food Project, in which Duncan Milwain, a consultant for Wrigleys Solicitors, is co-founder. The Real Junk Food Project is focused on raising awareness and helping to reduce the amount of food which is wasted unnecessarily. The Real Junk Food Project has a number of cafes across the UK and overseas which use food destined for waste, to create healthy and delicious meals at their 'Pay as You Feel' outlets.
Duncan adds: "The Real Junk Food Project will play an active part in the #LeedsBigLunch, serving diners who choose to sample their marvellous meals, although bringing your own lunch is also allowed!"
So if you can spare an hour and want to know more about the project, or just fancy a chinwag with contacts old or new, then pop down to the #LeedsBigLunch on Friday 26th May 2017.
