Where to eat
More about what we do
We recognise the environmental and social implications of procuring and providing food on campus and have developed a sustainable food policy to manage our operations effectively.
All food suppliers are provided with a copy of the Sustainable Food Policy and we work together to ensure the objectives are met.
Health and wellbeing
Edge Hill University have recognised the key role food can play in dealing with diet-related poor health to food poverty and waste, climate change and biodiversity loss to declining prosperity and social dislocation. Food is not only at the heart of some of the greatest problems, but also a vital part of the solution.Visit Sustainable Food Lancashire
Love Food Hate Waste
As part of Edge Hill University’s commitment to sustainability we support the Love Food Hate Waste (LFHW) scheme.
Almost 50% of the total amount of food thrown away in the UK comes from our homes. Wasting this food costs the average household £470 a year.Visit Love Food Hate Waste for tips and ideas

The Too Good To Go app lets customers buy and collect Magic Bags of this food – at a great price – directly from businesses.Visit Too Good to Go for more information
