Why waste food when we can share it?
HOW TO PLAY
The Ugly Veg Olympics is a competition between various teams, in which each team completes fundraising and awareness-raising "challenges" in order to win Bronze, Silver and Gold Medals.
The aim of each team is to collect as many medals as possible in order to stand a chance of winning a Prize.
Teams gain Bronze Medals by completing the following challenges:
1. Sign up your team.

3. Complete a video-call Training Session with Eat United to prepare fundraising and awareness-raising challenges.

Teams gain Silver Medals for each awareness-raising challenge they complete:
are fun videos or photos that we challenge your team to take. We aim to raise awareness about food security, food waste and the work of Eat United by posting these photos and videos on social networks.
Each challenge you complete wins your team a Silver Medal.
AIM: 5 Silver Medals
Teams gain Gold Medals by reaching fundraising milestones.
Teams raise funds by carrying out Fundraising Activities. You will be guided through choosing and planning your Activities by the Eat United team, through a "Guide to Fundraising" booklet and the Training Session team video-call.
A Gold Medal is awarded when your team reaches the following targets:
U$100, U$300, U$600, U$1000,
