Small Change, Big Difference FREE Cookery Classes
We all love food! After all, we can’t live without it. But sometimes, good food goes to waste – when it could have been eaten, or at least be turned into electricity or compost just by recycling it. The average household in London loses £70 a month to food waste. A whopping 910,000 tonnes of it goes to landfillevery year – the equivalent of one out of every five meals. And around 20,000,000 slices go to waste from UK homes every day!
Here at the Small Change, Big Difference campaign, we think it’s about time food got the respect it deserves. So we’re running 30 cookery workshops across our food-loving capital city between July and October, showing you how you can make delicious, healthy and waste-free food easily at home and make a genuine difference to the planet. Amongst other things, we’ll be showing you how to eat less meat, use up leftovers, store food so it doesn’t go off, and generally get virtuous with your food!
