Food Campaign - May 2016

Sheffield Friends of the Earth Food Campaign
The food campaign is now live so we should be getting more information from the national food group with lots more resources that we can give out. We also need to finalise our recipe book so that can go out too. If anyone has any time to help with this please let us know. Maybe we could split it up so that the burden does not fall just to one person?

Meat Free May
It is Meat Free May so we had a discussion on how people were getting on with this. The answer? Not too good. But it is highlighting some of the difficulties around this. The flexitarian approach seems to be working much better. Ideas suggested

  • Sunday dinner then using the left overs for the rest of the week.
  • Eating more fish.
  • Just buying less meat.
  • John has done one blog and it is suggested that one of us submits a blog each month. Beatrice said she could do the next one of her experiences of Meat Free May. 

Vegan Events
The Sheffield Vegan Approach is an event taking place on Saturday 4th June at Sheffield Quaker Meeting House, 10 St James Street.
