Greenwich has had its first Love Food Hate Waste training session to all the staff at Volunteer Centre Greenwich.  All staff are now ready to go out and spread the word about how to love food and hate waste.

The training was fun and involved activities and lots of surprising facts and myth busters!  However, the most exciting things were the goodies that we all got to take home, like spaghetti measures and cooking aprons, recipes etc….

Here’s some of the facts…….

Lots of foods are wasted in relatively small amounts but together they have a big impact, both financially and environmentally. We waste 200,000 tonnes of condiments, sauces, herbs and spices every year in the UK, costing us £700 million. They are usually added to other foods in small amounts in order to add flavour and, as a result, we often open a jar or packet for one recipe and then don’t get around to using the rest before it’s gone past its best! Love Food Hate Waste can help everyone to make more of their food and waste
