What we’re doing (University activity)


A University collaboration between Leicester Services Partnership and the Students’ Union provided a communal kitchen to reducing food waste by sharing donated food and providing access to boiling water, drinking water, a washing up facility, a microwave and a community fridge containing food that has reached its ‘sell by’ date, but is within the ‘use by’ date from LSP outlets.


University researchers hosted an international, 2 day conference at College Court in July 2023, focused on addressing socio-economic and environmental challenges in Ukraine with a particular focus on food networks.

The conference brought together expertise in agri-food supply chains related to resilience, sustainability and ecology and covered issues such as traceability, food security, safety, at a national and supply chain level and using industry 4.0 technologies to look specifically at Ukraine.
