Manchester Central reduces food waste

by Olivia Powell

Manchester Central has been promoting sustainability by donating surplus food to the city’s first waste food catering project.

The venue, in collaboration with Open Kitchen MCR, has been donating unused food which is then used to make dishes for catering at events, meetings and special occasions.

Open Kitchen MCR is a non-profit initiative which sources food which would otherwise go to waste and uses it to make meals. The income generated from their catering helps fund their work with a number of local organisations who support those in need.

As part of the partnership, the venue donates regular parcels filled with raw un-prepped fruit and vegetables as well as pre-packaged food to the chefs over at Open Kitchen MCR who then use the food to create catering options which are accessible to everyone.

This initiative means that any surplus raw ingredients at the venue won’t go to waste.

This is one of two initiatives which the venue is committed to. Manchester Central also donates sandwiches to The Homeless Project Manchester, an initiative which supports the needs of those without a home across the city.
