MOO Food in collaboration with Rowan held the first “Pumpkin Rescue” event at Tarradale Primary School on 30th October.
The children had lots of fun carving their lanterns, having the seeds and flesh for cooking. There were some scary designs and adults looked like they were having as much fun as the kids.
In the UK we waste 18000 tons of pumpkin at Halloween but the parents and pupils of Tarradale helped reduce that by making delicious soup ideal for lunch and toasted seeds as a yummy snack. Other pumpkin food were shared in to inspire participants to create something tasty rather than put in the bin. Recipes can be on the Resources page
