Pumpkin Rescue, Norwich

Event Date: 19/10/19

Saturday 19 October, 10am to 4pm at The Forum

Norwich City Council will be hosting their fourth Pumpkin Rescue event at The Forum this week!

Join our Food Savvy Volunteers and Master Composters at  this fun, free event celebrating the pumpkin, showcasing excellent ways of making the most of your spooky squash.

In the UK alone, 18 thousand tonnes of pumpkins are thrown away every year – the weight equivalent of 1,500 double decker buses! Food decomposing in landfill produces methane, a harmful greenhouse gas which has 21 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide.

There will be demonstrations of basic ways of using pumpkin carvings to create tasty treats, such as pumpkin soup and pumpkin pie. A variety of special visitors will also be offering more general advice and tips on making the most of the food you buy.
