Our day out at IKEA North Lakes!

It was a busy day for the Foodbank team as we partnered up with Matt Preston and IKEA North Lakes for a cooking demonstration involving the famous IKEA meatballs! We invited customers to come and chat with us, find out more about what we do and enter a raffle for a chance to win some IKEA goodies!

We also had the opportunity to speak during the cooking demonstration about everyday things we can do to cut food waste. Simple things such as meal planning, making a shopping list, not being tempted by the 2-for-1 offers and freezing leftovers.

You might be wondering what happened to the fresh produce displayed during the cooking demonstration. Well, just under 50kgs of cauliflower, melons, herbs and a variety of other fruit and vegetables were all donated to Foodbank and snapped up by our charity partners.
