Use your loaf: free bread on offer

Twenty million loaves of bread are thrown away every year in New Zealand. That means that every hour, 2,283 loaves are being chucked away.

It’s hard to believe and even harder to visualise, so come along to the Undercroft on Wednesday 18 October to watch as ENSOC students attempt to build a pyramid out of 2,283 loaves of bread.

To add to the pressure, they will be building the pyramid LIVE on Breakfast TV (6am – 9am).

While you’re there, you can make yourself a meal in a mug and learn how reducing your food waste can save money. Celebrity chef Jax Hamilton will be on hand to share her tips for using bread.

Of course we don’t want the bread to go to waste, so you will be able to grab yourself a loaf to take home.

With the help of the Student Volunteer Army the bread will also be distributed to local schools as well as delivered to the Community Fridge in New Brighton for members of the public to take.

If you love food and hate waste then join us 7am – 10am Wednesday 18 October in the Undercroft.
