Eco Eats

Cottenham Eco Eats is a festival of planet-friendly food for Cottenham  and surrounding villages.

IN RESPONSE TO THE CORONAVIRUS SITUATION WE’RE ADAPTING OUR PLANS FOR ECO EATS.  

The Festival weekend of cooking and eating together, organised with our partners Cambridge Sustainable Food, has been postponed and will now be held during 2021 instead of October 2020.

No need to wait until then – from this autumn we’ll be joining with Cambridge Sustainable Food to promote online Eco Eats activities as part of their Food for our Future campaign. Look out for notices of cook-alongs, composting workshops, recipe sharing and more on this page, or keep in touch via our FaceBook page.

In the meantime, if staying at home has given you time to try out new recipes, start growing veg or composting waste, explore different plant-based ingredients, or think about other ways to make your eating more sustainable, let us know or start a conversation on our FaceBook page. Remember at the end of the project there will be a Cottenham Eco Eats recipe book and we’ll be looking for ideas and recipes to include!

Whilst restrictions continue, we’re thankful more than ever for our wonderful local shops, open and offering fresh and healthy food, several with delivery or takeaway services, and a selection of seasonal, unwrapped, locally grown, locally reared or locally baked produce. A big cheer for them all!

We’re grateful for grants to help promote Eco Eats from:

  • South Cambridgeshire District Council Zero Carbon Communities
  •  Fen Edge Community Association
