luxuries.” A few grimacing mouthfuls later, the plate is empty. Adults will be reminded of their youth when they step into one Nigerian restaurant in east London and are faced with a £2.50 fine if they fail to finish what they have taken for dinner. At the Obalende Suya Express restaurant in Dalston, the penalty for greed is donated straight to the local Oxfam shop. 2 The West African barbecue eatery attracts a full house every Sunday with its Grill Greedy buffet, with trays and dishes overflowing with steaming meats and fried bananas. As customers fill their plates, however, they can hardly miss a big red sign warning them to make sure they eat it all up. Lara Odebunmi, who owns the restaurant with her husband Toks, says: “We realised a lot of people were wasting their food rather than finishing it, just because they could ‘eat as much as they liked’. They kept on 23 but they were only ever able to finish one plateful. At the end of the night, we felt really bad dumping all this food into the bin.” 3 FareShare, a national organisation that redistributes surplus food from restaurants and shops to local charities, believes that the food sector accounts for more than a third of all the waste produced in Britain. More than 12,000 people each day eat food that FareShare has 24 restaurant kitchens and shops’ chillers. But the majority of Britain’s tens of thousands of restaurants simply bin the food they are unable to sell. A. How does the writer introduce the article in “It is … for dinner.” (paragraph 1)?

Jo Bros 1 “Hello, I am Stacey and I’m a massive Jo Bros fan, so when I heard they were going to be on a Radio one show next Tuesday, I just knew I had to go there! I love going to Jo Bros concerts but there were always so many fans there that you were stuck miles away from the stage! I thought that if I was there at the radio station there would be a better chance of getting up close. The studio is not far from where I live, so my best mate and I came up with this plan to bunk off school and go. 2 On Tuesday I was so nervous I couldn’t eat any breakfast. It was really difficult to act normally in front of my parents. As soon as they had left for work I rushed to my room to take off my stupid school uniform. I didn’t want to meet the Jo Bros in that! The night before I’d already spent ages choosing my outfit so I changed into it, put on some lip gloss and mascara and headed for the studio. 63 EXAM PREPARATION - EXTRA PRACTICE - BBL
