FREE Love Food Hate Waste Workshops in June

Engaging communities on food waste reduction
Article Type
Why Save Food
Article Subcategory

The aim of these Love Food Hate Waste workshops is to provide you with knowledge of the scale and impact of food waste in Scotland, as well as understanding and practical skills around the simple things we can all do to stop wasting food and save money in the process. This can then be cascaded to your colleagues, community, friends and family.
You will (if you wish) receive a certificate at the end of the training. We can also provide your organisation with a certificate and a USB containing all the materials you need to pass the message on.

The training will cover the key messages of the national Love Food Hate Waste campaign, including:
• Understanding date labels
• Storage
• Better use of the freezer
• Portion sizes
• How to use up leftovers

It will also include interactive activities as a way to share these messages locally. Each session will last for approximately two hours.

Training Outline
• Introduction to food waste
• Discussion around food waste diaries
• Love Food Hate Waste activities
• Make one change pledge

Pre-requisites
No prior knowledge or experience required to attend this workshop, just an interest in reducing food waste. However we will be asking each participant to complete a food waste diary for seven days prior to the workshop. This will be used during the workshop, but will be completely anonymous.
