In the UK, we throw away 7 million tonnes of household food and drink every year, the majority of which could have been eaten. The average family wastes around £720.
Are you passionate about good food? Would you like to support people in your community to save money and plan, store and cook better to prevent food waste, by attending community events or giving talks? Or perhaps you would like to help run cookery sessions using household leftovers and surplus food from supermarkets and the high street as part of a Food Surplus Café.
We are looking for enthusiastic, friendly people from the Mid-Devon area, or nearby, who would like to take part in the Love Food Hate Waste Training and become Food Champions.
The Love Food Hate Waste training will be delivered by WRAP, and will include lots of activities and ideas to engage with people about the issue in your community or work place. There will also be some input from the CAG Devon team about how Food Champions might work together in Mid Devon.
