For the average Oxfordshire citizen, the food that we choose to eat has the most impact on the planet and climate change – particularly meat and dairy products.
So what can you do? Switch Up Your Lunch! On Monday 8th June, join us for what will be a day for veggie/vegan lunches on a historic scale.
Join staff and employers at Oxford’s major companies and institutions reducing the impact of their Monday lunch. Whether you eat at work, pack your own lunch, go out to eat, or eat at home, we’re inviting Oxford’s citizens and employers to take one or two simple steps to try tasty new meal ideas and reduce the burden of their meal on the planet.
Things that you can do:
- If you are an employer or institutional caterer, sign up as a campaign participant on goodfoodoxford.org/switchupyourlunch
- If your employer provides lunch, ask them to serve exclusively vegetarian options on June 8th.
- If you make your own lunch, make it a vegetarian or vegan meal that day. Watch our calendar for daily online cooking demos during the whole week starting 8th June.
- If you buy your lunch elsewhere, seek out a vegetarian or vegan option.
And tell us about it! Pledge your own lunch/your organisation’s lunches on our website, share photos on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #SwitchUpYourLunch, tag @goodfoodoxford and tell other people about it!
How can we minimize packaging and apply the principles of a circular economy in practice in Oxfordshire’s food and drink sector? And what challenges have you faced due to changes in response to Covid-19?
Join Oxfordshire’s Good Food Network for an evening of exchanging experiences and ideas. We will hear from some of the pioneers as well as recent startups in zero waste food and drink retail on how they overcame challenges on their journey.
There will also be time to:
* discuss challenges specific to the changes due to Covid-19 – for instance how the current boom in online orders and home deliveries can be integrated into the strive for less and more sustainable packaging;
* exchange experiences and best practice, to brainstorm on new collaborations;
* and for open space networking with like-minded businesses, entrepreneurs and community groups.
Good Food Oxford Network members and those interested in joining the network are equally welcome. Our network meetups are a great opportunity for finding out how you can get more involved as a network member, supporter or volunteer.
