National Love Food Hate Waste Campaign
Love Food Hate Waste is a national initiative to try and address this issue. It offers practical tips about a range of food-saving measures, from planning to food portioning, and from better food storage to using up leftovers. More details can be found at: www.scotland.lovefoodhatewaste.com
How can we help you?
If you would like to get involved, during February and March 2014 we are offering FREE TRAINING SESSIONS for a range of organisations within Glasgow City Council area, who wish to take an active role in reducing food waste.
The training sessions are a mix of presentations and interactive work lasting approximately 1.5 to 3.5 hours (flexible to suit the needs of the group) which cover the background and issues around food waste; the key behaviours to help reduce food waste and support on engaging with others and passing the messages on. It is designed to be fun and interactive and includes practical activities but please note it does not include a practical cookery element.
A full support pack will be provided, which includes a comprehensive handbook with copies of all the activities used in the training, as well as a planning sheet and an event tracker. Attendees will also receive a certificate of attendance to acknowledge their involvement in this national initiative. On-going support is available through monthly online newsletters and via our partners’ site
How can attendees help us?
In return for the free training, resources and support, we hope that attendees will do what they can to pass on the Love Food Hate Waste tips and advice to as many people as possible, so that even more people can share the benefits.
You can download and print off a poster for the training should you wish to help promote it.
If you are interested in attending a workshop and live in the Glasgow City Council area, please contact Marina Fraser on 07583 606737 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
