Sustainable street food project planned for Wandsworth

Sustainable street food project planned for Wandsworth

A new street food project championing sustainable and organic food is set to bring three cubes to the streets of Wandsworth, south London.

The three cubes will be installed on the piazza in front of Southside Shopping precinct and are planned to begin serving food in spring.

Blanc said: "StreetCube aims to deliver fresh, well-cooked, sustainable street gastronomy, prepared and cooked by independent chefs, who use organic, local, seasonal ingredients sourced within a 100-mile radius. StreetCube supports and engages with local growing charities, organic suppliers and even foragers to help maintain exciting and delicious seasonal and local specialties with a global flair and style."

He added: "Currently, we import more than 70% of all our food from overseas, which contributes to rising CO2 levels, but less than 1% is organic, what's worse is we throw 60% of it away."

Three independent vendors are being sought to take over the cubes and sign up to the StreetCube ethos.
