Merkamo Ethiopian – Spitalfields

The only “waist” you should be watching this festive season is your food waste 🙅🏼‍♀️ #Ad
I want to have a little chat about it. Did you know that A THIRD of all food produced isn’t eaten?! 🤷🏼‍♀️ That’s absolute madness. Think what we could do with that food! As you might already know, I’m very passionate about tackling this issue and after all, it’s the season for sharing so what better time to address it? (Notice how @jolley_chris has already started to share mine 😜)


Cue, an amazing app which lets you rescue fresh, unsold food from restaurants, pop ups and local retailers, preventing it going to waste. Hooray! 🎉 It couldn’t be easier either. Download the app, search for delicious food near you, then head to the venue and wait with anticipation to rescue your little magic bag of deliciousness at a brilliant price! 💰
@jolley_chris and I chose to rescue food from @merkamo.ethiopian in @oldspitalfieldsmarket. We had heard so much about it and couldn’t wait to get our mitts on some! As expected, the food was divine. It was fresh, packed with natural ingredients and unusual texture combinations and made us feel great. Plus, we got all of this food for £6 which is just incredible 😱 It’s crazy to think that this tasty food would’ve gone to waste otherwise 😢
I know that a lot of you feel as passionately about food as I do and would hate to see anything wasted so download the app and start doing your bit ☺️
