Sixways Stadium Has Joined Up With ‘Too Good To Go’!
Sixways Stadium in Worcester has announced a new partnership with ‘Too Good To Go’, the conscious app who’s mission is to ‘make sure all food gets eaten, not wasted’.
As a Stadium they are continuously striving to become more sustainable, and ensuring that they waste as little food as possible is just one small step towards their goal.
How does it work?
The initiative is an app which lists businesses’ unsold food so local diners can find, purchase and enjoy it. The app was created in 2016 by a group of entrepreneurs who witnessed restaurant staff throwing away fresh food for no reason other than the fact it hadn’t sold in time and no one was around to take it off their hands.
Now, thousands of Magic Bags are rescued from businesses such as supermarkets, restaurants, and bakeries every day. The success of the app powers Too Good To Go’s wider efforts to drive a food waste movement, working with schools, industries and governments to build a planet-friendly food system.
The app operates in 14 different countries, and they have worked with 60,000 partner stores globally to save 45,million meals.
Jamie Crummie, co-founder of Too Good To Go, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Worcester Warriors to the Too Good To Go community. Of our 4,000 partners, Worcester Warriors is the first sports team to join our app, paving the way for a more sustainable approach to food in the sports industry. Food waste is a huge contributor to climate change, yet perfectly edible food is still thrown away every day. Having partners like Worcester Warriors onboard strengthens the collective effort to inspire and empower everyone to fight food waste together.”
