Manchester Central helps tackle food waste

Manchester Central is donating surplus food to Manchester’s first waste food catering project.  

The venue has been working with Open Kitchen MCR to donate unused food, which is then transformed into catering for events, meetings and special occasions.  

Open Kitchen MCR is a not-for-profit initiative which sources food which would otherwise go to waste and turns it into delicious dishes for all. The income generated from their catering funds their work with local organisations who support people having a hard time.  

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

Itis one of two initiatives which the venue says it is committed to, alongside the sandwich donations also makes to the Homeless Project Manchester, an initiative which supports the needs of those without a home across the city.
