Stop Food Waste Challenge 2017

We all waste food. It can’t be helped – plans change, we prepare too much, leftovers go off in the fridge, we forget about the stuff in the bottom of the freezer, etc. Stop Food Waste are challenging Irish householders to set themselves a target to reduce their food waste by at least 1/4. The challenge involves 4 meetings and will cover the following:

  • Awareness of what is being wasted
  • The importance of proper planning of meals and usingyour shopping list
  • How smart shopping can ensure that you don’t waste your hard earned money on food that you don’t really need
  • Storing food properly to make the most of what you have bought
  • New ways of serving and reusing the food that you have in your home
  • Finally, how to deal with the unavoidable food waste we do generate and the many methods of home composting
