Join our Eating Well on a Budget Challenge

Circular Cambridge is a season of events that celebrates progressive ways to design, manufacture, access, repair and reuse the things that we want and need in our lives. 

Did you know that the average UK students’ weekly food allowance is approximately £23? This challenge is designed to demonstrate that even on such a tight budget, anyone is still capable of eating good quality, local food.

Participants will have the chance to explore the contribution food makes to climate change and understand what makes food ‘sustainable’. Be prepared to indulge in the amazing diversity of our local, seasonal produce, and make some new friends at our bring-and-share meal on Monday 24 June.

Quote from a recent participant:
“The challenge really made me think about how much I ate and what I really needed to have an enjoyable, nutritious diet. I actually felt healthier during these four weeks, as I never over-ate…and I found I had more energy.” (Bev)

The challenge will begin on Monday 17 June and will last for two weeks until Friday 28 June. For more information, have a look at the challenge page and our sustainable food blog.
