Photos, Junk Food & Little Green Pigs

It is World Book Day so it is fitting that today’s guest on Under the Influence with Mike Willis is Julie Watson from Little Green Pig. A charity that believes all young people can be writers. Julie pitched at BrightonSoup back in November and although she didn’t win she had lots of interest so she has some great things to say about the experience. To find out more, and to hear what Little Green Pig have been up to since the event tune in to 1BrightonFM at 1pm today. Hopefully there won’t be any acapella Queen. 🙂 No promises though.

We want to thank Sarah and all at The Real Junk Food Project for the veg donation which ended up in Tom’s Spicy Parsnip & Swede Soup – which was very popular. If you don’t know, TRJFP help eradicate food wastage by feeding it to people on a “pay as you feel” basis. Sam Redfern, one SCAN-20160303of their volunteer chefs who cooked a delicious Tuscan Bean Soup for our event said cooking at TRJFP was like “Ready, Steady, Cook”. What a great way to take what would be wasted and put it to delicious use.

You probably know TRJFP host a popup event at One Church in Gloucester place at 1pm every Friday, but did you know they host several events across Brighton & Hove?

St Lukes Church on Old Shoreham Road – Mon to Wed (open midday)
Hollingdean Community Centre – Thu (open 1 pm)
The Hive in Hove – 1st Wed of the month (open midday)

Plenty of opportunities to try them out across town and you can get the full details on their website. And if you can’t make it yourself then pass the info on.

If you haven’t spotted it yet, our event photos are up on bookface. A very special thanks to Natalie Duke for helping us out for the evening and giving us some great photos.

Happy World Book Day!
