Our cookbook is out! A Citizens' Cookbook is a book exploring the foods that most often go to waste in Buckinghamshire during the different months of the year. To address this waste, we transformed them into recipes to help you experiment with new and delicious meals.
We've put together 12 recipes centred on fruit and vegetable gluts common to Buckinghamshire. What's a glut?!? A glut is an excessive supply of something. Sometimes, part of the crop remains in the field unpicked as it isn't economically profitable to harvest anymore. That means that food still good to eat goes to waste.
From gooseberries to potatoes, cabbage to rhubarb, these recipes will give you the chance to help prevent tonnes of food waste entering the landfill.

What's Food Citizenship? It is the action of thinking about and being proactive about food, both as individuals and collectively as a nation. With food waste being a large contributor to greenhouse gases creating the climate crisis, by being more mindful about what and how we eat, we all have the power to be part of positive change.
