Get involved with this fantastic new poetry-writing contest, called the Save The Food Poetry Competition!
Launching this Monday 10 February, it’s hosted by Too Good To Go, the social impact group and app which strives to fight food waste and aims to educate consumers on the environmental issues food waste causes.
This exciting poetry-writing competition is all set to get children inspired around food waste issues, and fire them up with creativity as a learning tool around the wider message.
Too Good To Go was founded to connect consumers with suppliers who have unsold, surplus food. The app was created in 2016 and has 2.5m registered users in the UK. This contest is supported by Defra.
Jamie Crummie, TGTG co-founder, said: “We are truly excited to be launching the first food waste poetry competition in the UK. Poetry is the most accessible of art forms and we want everyone to be able to join in. We’re inviting all primary school children to try their hand at writing a poem at school or at home and we can’t wait to see the creative results.”
– The competition is open to all primary school children across the UK
– It’s open from 10 February to 31 March 2020
– Entrants are encouraged to balance good knowledge of the food waste issue with creativity, and can submit any style of poem, from rhyming couplets to haikus
