Help us save seasonal veg
With most of the food services sectors currently closed, a great deal of veg is at risk of going to waste.
With Summer just around the corner, now more than ever we need to be supporting farmers by eating the delicious seasonal veg Britain has to offer.
So the team at VegPower have rallied together chefs, retailers, schools, box schemes and local authorities to shine a spotlight on seasonal veg across their blogs and social media.
You will find a bunch of seasonal recipes on the VegPower website and you can help spread the word on social media using the hashtag #SeasonalVeg.
