THREEdom for food waste! The next installment of the 'Day of Good' in Ealing!
On Saturday 18th January GoodGym Ealing hosted a whole day of good deeds in the borough including filling all the volunteer roles at Gunnersbury parkrun, litter picking our way around Gunnersbury Park afterwards, sorting surplus food and organising crates at City Harvest and finishing up for another litter pick in Acton Park.
Onto part 3 of 4 of a fun filled day of Goodgyming with the Ealing Crew and a bunch of Goodgym Tourists from all over London.
Task three day was to help City Harvest London with sorting through there food donations, and sorting through the plastic crates and helping to tidy up their unit.
City London Harvest puts surplus food to good use in a sustainable way. This great charity ensures food that would otherwise have been disposed of goes to help those who are hungry.
-They collect food from a variety of sources from across the food industry.
Pack, Wrap, n Stack!
- We had a variety of tasks sorting through and restacking several hundred plastic crates was a fun a strenuous start to the task.
Fuelled on by Bananas & some excellent Vegan Biscuits (thanks Liv) we kept going.
We then then moved on to helping to load up their delivery vehicles with crates packed for food deliveries.
We sorted out the frozen food, and separated the fruit and vegetables.
No crying over Spilt Milk.
- One of the more challenging parts of the day was disposing of the Milk that had passed its sell by date. Two hearty Goodgymmers took on that task.
Various other jobs were completed such as tidying up the food packaging, sorting out pallets and filling up the fridge full of fruit juice drinks.
It was then to a quick pit stop for lunch before heading on to task four of the day!
