Abstract

Acts Trust (AT) are a Lincoln Charity with a mission to “empower people to end poverty”. AT have over 10 years of experience in the storage of food donations and the redistribution to those in food poverty. AT is a member of the Lincoln Food Partnership (LFP); a steering committee which is working collaboratively with a wider network of partners to tackle key issues with food production, supply, consumption and waste. One of the key projects that the LFP are working towards is the creation of a Waste Food Hub that will become a focal point for the collection and redistribution of waste or surplus food (and donations) from the food supply chain to various community groups who are working to alleviate food poverty.
Using a Challenge-Based learning (CBL) approach, the University of Lincoln challenged students to propose solutions for the design of a Waste Food Hub, considering sustainable safe logistics plans for the collection and redistribution of food from suppliers to food champions. Furthermore, students needed to follow a sustainability approach to operations and logistics management. Results from this CBL project will be presented, including lessons learned from using CBL in a logistics and operations teaching environment.
