Sheffield On A Plate

We are a partnership project involving the 3 main further and higher education institutions of Sheffield, the local community food network, Grow Sheffield, and Fareshare Yorkshire.

We aim to raise sustainability awareness amongst students and staff in higher education, further education and the communities of Sheffield through a focus on food.

The Big Stew is Sheffield on a Plate’s mass feeding event on 5th November to bring the issues of food waste and food poverty to the forefront of people’s minds, then inspire people to take a variety of related actions.
