New Food Savvy Champion Training launched

Do you feel passionate about food? Then you might be interested in getting involved in our Food Savvy project which helps people make the most of their food and waste less. We are looking for people who would like to become Food Savvy Champions and are willing to share their knowledge with others on how to cut down on food waste.

In the UK each year households throw away seven million tonnes of food and drink.  This costs the average family with children about £730 a year or the equivalent of £60 per month.

As a Food Savvy Champion, you will be trained in issues regarding food waste and equipped with tools and ongoing support to help others in your local community to make the most of their food, reduce food waste and save money. Anyone over the age 18 can join the scheme; you will receive free training and resource pack and ongoing support from your programme coordinator and waste reduction officers.

As well as gaining new knowledge and helping others, becoming a volunteer is also a great way to meet new people. The next training will be held online over two day on Saturday 30th January and Saturday 6th February (10.00am – 12.30pm).

If you would like more information or are interested in becoming a Food Savvy Champion please email foodsavvy@norfolk.gov.uk or call us on 0344 800 8020.
