Dipa J Jethwa, CookedLocal founder says. "Food waste is a major issue in developed countries, with the UK alone throwing 7 million tonnesof food every year. It costs us a huge £12.5 billion, and it is also hugely damaging to the environment. as a life long home-style cook and passonate eco advocate, it saddens me to see how much food is wated on a daily basis. Usually, a ticket to the bin is because too much food was cooked, or a person doesn't want to eat same meal two days running. I founded CookedLocal to address this nationwide issue, and encourage the establishment of dynamic, food oriented communities accross the UK.

As multifunctional platform, CookedLocal designed to benefit a myraid users. For chefs that they're simple preparing too much food, it's great way to share with those who can't find the time to cook freshly made meals for themselves. It eleminate the need to feel guilty about throwing our leftovers, and is a great way to reduce waste. As bud their fellow locals and run their very own home-grown restaurant. Chefs can choose to give away food, or add a chrage to cover of ingredients and time.

For foodies, CookedLocal unlocks access to a kaleidoscope of flavours, all prepared from scratch. For those that love fresh food but simply can’t find the time to cook, it’s a tasty solution.
