How to run a Pumpkin Rescue event The 'Pumpkin Rescue' is a family-friendly celebration of seasonal food. The campaign aims to help households fight food waste at Halloween and all year around. Since we launched the first Pumpkin Rescue in 2014, 250 communities around the country have run their own events. Here we've put together all the tools for you to do the same including event inspiration, practical guidance, design assets, stats, recipes and more. Whether it's feeding 1,000 with surplus pumpkin soup, inviting communities to compost their carvings or simply giving food saving a shout out on social, you'll find everything you need to put on an event that feels right for you.
