Food Savvy Norfolk
Food Savvy Norfolk is here to help you tackle food waste, whilst celebrating good food and saving you money.
We are excited to have joined forces with Suffolk Councils and the environmental charity Hubbub to become #FoodSavvy to help people across both counties become smart with their food.
Here at Food Savvy Norfolk we want to continue to help you reduce the food you throw away, just as we did with our Plan Eat Save campaign. So, for savvy recipes, hints and tips follow us:

#TravellersCheck - Wave good bye to waste this holiday
Summer holidays are upon us. Your bags are packed, your out of office is ON, but is the fridge still half full? Cucumbers, cheese, a bag of leaves… don’t leave them home alone.
Did you know the UK throws away £½ billion worth of edible food when heading off on holiday each year, and £12 million worth of food ends up in the bin in the first week of the summer holiday alone.
Our latest food waste campaign, #TravellersCheck, is here to help you save to food waste by adding three simple steps to your travel planning:
- Freeze: Check in with your Freezer. Here are facts about freezing that everyone should know and food you possibly thought you couldn’t freeze.
- Gift: 81% of us would be happy to receive food from a neighbour,so download the Food Savvy postcard to gift a package to a neighbour, or a food sharing app to connect with your community and local retailers. Certain food can be shared at a community fridge you can find your local community fridge here.
- Cook before going away: Take a tasty meal on the road or consider cooking yourself a homecoming meal. Try our favourite Food Savvy recipes to use up any odds and ends in the fridge, then pop in the freezer.
We would love to share some of our best loved leftover recipes with you, click here to see the latest.
