Have Yourself a Very Savvy Christmas

Tray bakeFood Savvy, a collaborative food waste reduction campaign led by Norfolk County Council, Suffolk Waste Partnership and environmental charity Hubbub, is here to help households to reduce food waste and save money this Christmas.

It is estimated that UK residents will waste the equivalent of 54 million platefuls of food during December. This not only equates to a lot of unnecessary spending, but causes problems for the environment too. However, there are some simple steps we can all take to help to combat this.

This December, our Food Savvy Champions will be leading some free webinars to share their knowledge and top tips on how to make the most of your meals and reduce food waste during the festive season (and beyond!).

During the webinars we will explore issues like the amount and types of food waste we create, why it’s a problem, the financial impact and highly wasted Christmas items. We will then move on to look at some Food Savvy solutions including:

·         Planning

·         Dates and what they mean

·         Storage and making the best use of your fridge and freezer

·         Portion calculator

·         Using up leftovers and recipe ideas

 

The webinars will run on:

Tuesday 8th December 2020, 7pm – 8pm

Wednesday 9th December 2020, 10am – 11am

(Please note, you will only need to attend one date as the content will be the same for both).
