Record where food is going, take some round to local hostels. Help us make new connections with charities across the city to better distribute the food.

Organisation aims and objectives

The SHRUB Co-op aims to reduce waste by providing a platform for people to engage with sustainability. It is student-led, but anybody can get involved. We run a Swapshop, where people can swap their ‘waste’ things for items swapped in by others, a Freeshop (for members of the co-operative), a beginners Bicycle repair and maintenance workshop, upcycling and upskilling workshops, Social Justice Movie Nights, and host a food-sharing group who tackle food waste.
