Once again, we are being urged to stay at home where possible. Rather than popping into our local supermarket every couple of days to pick up a few bits and bobs, we’re being asked to limit trips and to only go when it’s truly essential.  

This means we might be taking fewer trips to the shops, doing larger shops and may need to be a little flexible in our choices. 

We’re still here to help. We’ve been fighting food waste for a long time, so when it comes to kitchen tips and tricks, shopping skills and storage solutions - we’ve got all the information you need to Be Stay-at-Home Savvy!

We’ll be using our Facebook and Instagram pages to help you make the most of what you already have, and we’ll be highlighting some of the resources on our site that might help make staying at home that little bit easier.
