A few weeks ago, participated in the stimulating Good for Nothing weekend in London, England and part of our task was to visit the FoodCycle Cambridge Hub. As an Editor and Community Manager here at Social Business, I used my skills for FoodCycle, a London-based non-profit organization that diverts edible food waste to create nutritional meals using free kitchen space and young volunteers. I lent some of my wordy skills to do some copywriting for a new campaign and create a press release to go alongside the animation and documentary that we created. We had a load of other talented individuals that contributed not simply their know-how, but their undying fervor -- I learnt from them on this front.

While the Good for Nothing event was two days long, eight of us from the FoodCycle team spent a big chunk of our Saturday at the FoodCycle Cambridge Hub getting a feel for the weekly community meal that takes place at the Centre at St. Paul's. blogged about the experience on the FoodCycle site, a post that illuminates how fresh perspectives are important to any business, enterprise, organization and person.
