SussexFood are now on the Too Good To Go app

SussexFood have signed up to the Too Good To Go app, meaning they have joined the company in their focus on fighting food waste.

If you aren’t aware of the app, now is the best time to hear what it has to offer!

Instead of eateries throwing away their perfectly edible (and delicious) unsold food towards the end of service, they use the Too Good To Go app so that you can become a ‘waste warrior’ and rescue it from the bin at an amazing price. SussexFood are offering their boxes at as little as £2.00!

To get involved, all you need to do is download the app through the website so you can then browse the offers available, order and pay through the app (which accepts cards and PayPal).

At the moment SussexFood are offering mystery boxes from their largest and busiest outlet, Eat Central; the box can be packed with a variety of fresh foods ranging from barbeque chicken through to sticky belly pork or fresh salad.

The specific collection time for the Eat Central café is between 8pm and 8.15pm – an excellent time for dinner.

You only have to show your mobile receipt (which you receive at the point of purchasing your box through the app) and then grab and go! (You can take your surprise box full of food away with you or enjoy it on site.)

If you aren’t on campus later on in the evening, there are multiple stores that operate in Brighton, so it’s definitely worth downloading the app and finding out what great environmentally and economically friendly deals you can find!

Help fight food waste, join the app and get yourself some tasty food that’s just too good to go!

Go Greener at Sussex

The University of Sussex has begun an ambitious journey to become one of the greenest universities in the UK and is working towards cutting its carbon emissions by 45 percent by 2020.

The University, which is home to some of the world’s leading sustainability academics, is engaged in a multi-million pound programme which has already seen more than 3,000 solar panels fitted on 29 buildings - the largest solar project in the UK higher education sector.

Go Greener will also involve the replacement of 27,000 light bulbs with more efficient LED lighting, improved heating and cooling systems, and the installation of smart metering across the campus.

Over the next three years the University will be looking to replace current energy systems with more sustainable alternatives, with the aim of becoming one of the most energy-efficient universities in the UK within the next ten years.
