In November, we took Wahaca to Trafalgar Square along with a handful of other amazing restaurants and guest chefs for a lunchtime of free pork pibil tacos, made using the meat from pigs which were entirely fed on waste food, which would have otherwise gone to landfill. It was all part of our Food Waste Campaign, The Pig Idea set up by Thomasina Miers and Tristram Stuart.
Our tacos fed over 2,000 people that day and in total over 5,000 people had a free lunch courtesy of 6 of the campaign’s pigs, raised in Stepney City Farm. As well as being an amazingly tasty piece of recycling, it also helped to get a serious message across. Here’s a short video to explain a little more about the campaign.
