Low Carbon Lunch

Low carbon lunch preparation
Wednesday, 29 September, 2021 - 10:00 to 23:00

Sustainable Food Places Network (SFP) members are joining a food and climate day of celebration and action September 29 in the run up to COP26. Here at Crop Drop we'll be enjoying our own low carbon lunch together on the day, as we'll be doing our weekly packing session. Feel free to join us wherever you are in cooking and eating a low carbon lunch. If you're using the vegetables from your Crop Drop veg bag, don't forget to tag us (@cropdrop) and your recipes may well get featured on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages!

Here are the details:

Whether you are an individual eating lunch solo or an organisation serving food, you can join in on the day by organising a low carbon lunch on September 29 and posting your photos on twitter. Don’t forget to tag @FoodPlacesUK and include the hashtags #lowcarbonlunch #Food4Planet and #FoodPartnership.

Low carbon food has been tainted by sensationalistic headlines of late. Our SFP vision is one where a low carbon lunch includes mostly plants, with meat, fish and dairy from more sustainable sources with higher animal welfare, and food sourced in ways that result in healthier and prosperous communities.

A low carbon lunch will most certainly be a colourful lunch that is not only good for the planet but a feast to our taste buds.

Last thing to remember is to eat everything you cook or serve and if you can’t use it, take it home or give it to someone else.

More info about the event can be found here.

If you're looking for recipe inspiration, we have hundreds of plant-based, seasonal recipes in our recipe section.
