Queenswood Fave Saves: Love food, hate waste
Thursday 29 September 2022
Wasting food is not only bad news for your bank account, it impacts climate change too. Food waste accounts for roughly 25 million tonnes of CO2 a year, so making the most of leftovers is a responsibility we must all share.
The Love Food Hate Waste campaign offers simple hacks, tips and guidance to make the most of our food at home - and protect our beautiful planet in the process. Just look in your fridge for ingredients that you need to use up and type the item's name into campaign's website here. You will learn how to prepare the item for freezing, how to calculate portion sizes and how you can combine your leftover ingredients into a delicious meal.
In an average family home, 8 meals each week could be saved if we stopped binning our unused food - an incentive to save pennies and the planet too!
