Meanwhile in the news today the BBC wrote that ‘on average about a fifth of food binned across the industry is spoiled, damaged or past its best. Almost half gets the chop as it’s prepped. And a third is our fault – plate waste sent back when someone cannot manage it. Salad, spuds and rice are the most over-served offenders.’ This is something that would never happen at The Village Kitchen.
