Some Food Waste Facts
• We throw away 5.3 million tonnes of good food and drink each year
in the UK - all of which could have been eaten
• Avoidable food and drink waste is responsible for the equivalent of
20 million tonnes of carbon dioxide - the equivalent of taking 25%
of cars off the road
• £10 billion worth of avoidable food and drink waste equates to £480
per year for the average household, rising to around £650 per year
for families with children

Dean Bracher - Vegan Food For The Soul
A meal especially the main evening meal is an experience of taste and texture. Something to plan and look forward too but after a day in whatever pursuit you just want solid food that meets its need to make you happy and fulfilled. Vegan food offers just that and it’s the same to make as any other lifestyle and dietary plan. I love healthy food that I know is meeting these needs and tastes and look great too. So this demonstration is just that, to be tasty and colourful and not wear you out while cooking it.
