Pasta Evangelists launch their “wonky” pumpkin dishes to raise money for FareShare

28 October 2020

Fresh pasta delivery service Pasta Evangelists has teamed up with wonky veg supplier Waste Knot to launch its first range of “wonky” pasta dishes, with £1 from each “wonky” dish being donated to FareShare.

“We love this smart partnership with Pasta Evangelists and Waste Knot. It brings together the best of maximising surplus Pumpkins so that they aren’t wasted and also helps fund meals out to people in need this Winter through our network of local charities. A fantastic initiative!”

Alyson Walsh, FareShare Commercial Director

The pasta dishes are made from pumpkin flesh that would otherwise go to waste at this time of year, when an estimated 24m Halloween pumpkins are destined to become food waste (according to a recent Hubbub poll) .

The menu has been created in aid of FareShare, with £1 from each “wonky” dish sold being donated to support our mission to tackle food waste and fight hunger.

FareShare Commercial Director Alyson Walsh said: “We love this smart partnership with Pasta Evangelists and Waste Knot. It brings together the best of maximising surplus Pumpkins so that they aren’t wasted and also helps fund meals out to people in need this Winter through our network of local charities. A fantastic initiative!”

Available to order from until Friday 6th November, the limited-edition “wonky” range - which includes a Pumpkin & Black Truffle made with surplus pumpkins supplied by Waste Knot - is designed to inspire customers to transform their own Halloween pumpkins into beautiful pasta dishes this year instead of sending them to landfill.
