A bin for food wasteThe College’s Community Science Seed Fund was launched to offer small grant funding to local residents and community groups seeking to engage with STEM education and research. One of the ground-breaking projects supported through the fund is Bubble & Squeak, a social enterprise led by primary school children on East Acton Estate, which brings the community together to tackle the problem of food waste.

Local children organise a wide variety of activities from hosting a weekly surplus food stall and intergenerational community events, to running a community garden and collaborating with diverse partners. The College has been supporting Bubble & Squeak’s Super Scientist Soup project which aims to explore STEM while fighting food waste.
