Why should I reduce my food waste?
The average UK family throws away £730 of food* that could've been eaten each year! Not only is this a waste of money but it damages the environment by wasting precious energy, carbon and resources.
So many of us waste more food than we realise, but with advice from storing food correctly to fridge raiding recipes, it’s easy to make the most of your food. We’ll share our money-saving, waste-preventing, kitchen tips through fun interactive sessions.
