This month the University of Bristol has been recognised as a Going for Gold Champion for its work across all the #GoingForGoldBristol action areas. In this blog, postgraduate student Ellen McKee who is interning with the University’s Sustainability Department describes some of the Gold-star food sustainability work being done across the University.

Brunel Field Primary School in Bishopston opened in January 2011, admitting a total of 60 children into two Reception classes every year. Inspired by the Bristol Going for Gold campaign, staff, pupils and caterers have united to take action on food waste in the school. Daisy Nichols, a volunteer with Resource Futures, writes about their efforts.
