Ep 6. Grub Cycle
In this episode of the Set Lunch Podcast, eFM’s Razif Hashim sits down with Grub Cycle founder, Redza Shahid to discuss ending food wastage in Malaysia, and how we can sustain a growing population with the food we are producing. A Social Enterprise that aims to place the lost value back onto food as something that should be eaten and not thrown away, Grub Cycle is raising awareness of food waste by making surplus food accessible to buy at a bargain price.
Grub Cycle is part of a growing global movement that seeks to minimise food wastage whilst also looking after communities that are deprived of basic culinary necessities. The idea for Grub Cycle began when the co-founders met at a refugee school, while doing some volunteering. They realised how they worked well together and shared a united passion for community service. Food wastage seemed like such a prevalent problem that goes unnoticed, so the team of 4 decided to take it on and start championing a solution for this problem.
Part of the proceeds goes to subsidising the cost of basic food necessities like rice, oil, and eggs for marginalised communities.
