Real Food Moments – My Brilliant Moment

May 17, 2016

Real Food Moments – My Brilliant Moment is a collection of short films, in which local food heroes share the moments of inspiration that galvanized their projects and encouraged them to make a difference.

Three inspirational organisations are represented in Episode 2 in which we are treated to personal accounts of “brilliant moments” in the lives  of James Smart – Co-founder of Save The Date Cafe, Maria Devereaux – project manager of Growing Health and our very own Scarlett Penn [Coordinator, WWOOF UK].

Scarlett Penn

Save the Date Cafe is East London’s first egalitarian eatery and is a member of The Real Junk Food Project. Food destined for landfill is salvaged and turned into restaurant standard cuisine which is offered on a pay-as-you-feel basis. Founded in November 2014, the Save the Date Cafe team are all volunteers (including directors) who have a passion for food and preventing waste.

Growing Health is a national project run by Garden Organic and Sustain to see how community food growing can be routinely used by the health and social care services as a way of promoting health and wellbeing.
