Want to Save Money and Reduce Food Waste?


On the 4th March, I am going to be hosting a Love Food Hate Waste Cascade Training Event at the Powerhouse in Llanedeyrn.

Food waste is a big problem in today's society, it is bad for the environment and bad for our pockets. UK households waste £12.5 billion worth of good food and drink each year, costing the average family with children £700 a year, or around £60 a month. Most of this food and drink waste could have been avoided if we'd eaten it in time, or knew how much food to prepare and what we could do with our leftovers.

I have teamed up with Love Food Hate Waste, a national initiative to try and address this issue. The training session will offer practical tips about a range of food-saving measures, from planning to food portioning, and from better food storage to using up leftovers.

By the end of the session, you will be able to:

  • Understand the significance of food waste, its causes, and consequences.
  • Have an awareness of what steps food manufactures, suppliers, and retailers are taking to help us all waste less food.
  • Understand Love Food Hate Waste tips and advice and know how they themselves can benefit from this.
  • Be able to engage with others on Love Food Hate Waste and help share the benefits.
  • Be able to plan, deliver, and monitor the outcome of their activities and communication around Love Food Hate Waste, using new and existing opportunities available to them.
  • Know how to access information and resources to support them in spreading the message.

Everyone is welcome to join me on the 4th March in this exciting course starting at 13:30 on the 4th March in the Powerhouse.
