We received a huge bag of bananas from the Co-Op for our community larder today and decided to make some banana muffins. They are really tasty and we thought that people might like to try them and also try to make them themselves. We still have plenty of bananas left so come along to the community centre and help yourself to some and also pick up a little bag with a muffin and a recipe in it 🍌
We’ve been working with Cambusbarron Co-op making out of date produce available to our local community. We aim to have produce available every week day. No two days are the same and there is usually a range of items such as fresh fruit and vegetables, bakery items and chilled foods.
Foods will be available for collection in the Community Centre during opening hours, just pop in and help yourself. Our main aim is to reduce the amount of food waste going to landfill and it has been inspiring to see the difference we are making. The Co-op have lots of tips to help reduce food waste on their website and another great place for inspiration is LoveFoodHateWaste.
One of our Community Larder fans has been sharing photos of some of the meals she’s made using produce from the Food Share – lots of inspiration here!
