Bind Project

Reduce Food waste

Bind is Newcastle’s not-for-profit food waste hub that believes in positive, creative approaches to reduce food waste and drive behaviour change. We focus our work on changing public attitudes, education, local policy and collaborating with local private, public and third sector organisations to deliver consistent, effective projects to reduce food waste.

Our Projects

Magic Hat

The Magic Hat Café aims to divert good food from landfill, and raise awareness on food waste by ‘upcycling’ surplus food to feed the community. Food that would otherwise be sent to landfill is collected from local food businesses and households in and around Newcastle upon Tyne.

Eat smart

Eat Smart is an educational programme which looks at food waste created on a primary school site, and helps the children to understand the importance of reducing food waste from a young age.

NE leftovers

NE Leftovers is our pilot project which helps small food businesses take control of their food waste. NE Leftovers is designed to help small businesses achieve the same benefits, who would normally find the the initial investment prohibitive.
