In order to help spread the word in their communities and make sure those in need are aware, members of the public shared on Twitter whether their neighbourhood Asda was participating in the free vegetables initiative and which vegetables they were offering. For example, one user shared that “ ASDA Clapham Junction is giving away FREE vegetables such as parsnips, broccoli, carrots and brussels sprouts”.
Another user shared that “ ASDA Toryglen has free vegetables for anyone to take. Please go help yourself, they don’t want any to go to waste”.
Asda received praise from the general public for this initiative, which not only reduces food waste but also aids in addressing the current Cost-of-Living Crisis, where many people find it difficult to pay for essentials.
The hashtag #reducewaste was also trending on twitter, as people were using it along with #Asda when tweeting about the free vegetables for customers idea . The Cardiff Met catering twitter account shared an image of the vegetables at Asda Caerphilly, along with an image of the note attached to the crate of vegetables which states “ Help yourself. We’ve got some Christmas leftovers that we don’t want to waste so were giving them away. Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year”.
