Donate, don't dump!
Students and staff at Plymouth University are asked to bring any edible and sealed food items to collection points in The Hive at the Students' Union as part of the Christmas Food Drive.
All food will be collected by the student group UNIcycle and donated to George House homeless hostel in Stonehouse, Plymouth.
The UNIcycle - Food waste group is a symbiosis between homeless shelters, food suppliers and students. Unicycle seeks to combat local food insecurity and poverty via utilising food waste in a way that benefits the wider community. Currently working with the University of Plymouth Students' Union (UPSU) and Marks & Spencer, this is a small project but it is hoped that it will have a knock on effect, raising awareness of the current issue and potentially encourage other businesses to adopt similar practices.
