What is a Food Savvy Champion

Food Savvy Champions are trained volunteers who are passionate about food and want to help you make the most of your food, reduce food waste and save money.


How can Food Savvy Champions Help you

Our volunteers have lots of tips and information, they can advise on meal planning, food storage, portion sizes, how to use your leftovers, take the confusion out of date labels and lots more! Our Food Savvy Champions share their knowledge in a variety of ways such as attending events, giving a talk, writing articles for local magazines, having a chat with neighbours and friends or posting on our social media platforms.
