Love food Hate Waste

I couldn't put it better myself. I love food and hate to see waste, so I was delighted to be asked to head up the Northamptonshire  Love Food hate waste campaign.  The time has just flown by and it's been seriously fun taking the road show campaign out and talking to the people of Northamptonshire.

Sara, Rebecca and the team have been out all over the county giving out advice, leaflets, recipes and the perfect measuring scoops for rice and pasta. Of course being half term the children helped out on the market square, not allowing a single person to go past with out a leaflet  .. it was great fun to get people to think about changing their habits.

Here are three facts that really made me sit up and think

An average family throws away up to a quarter of all the food they buy, which equates to up to £50 a month

If everyone in the country stopped throwing away food that could have been eaten, it would have the same carbon impact as taking 1 in 4 cars off the road in the UK

Nationally, we throw away 8.3 million tonnes of food every year, most of which could have been eaten.

So if you'd like chance to win a copy of Prepped the county council are giving 10 copies away  .. .enter the competition here: 

and please  think about the way you use food.  We cal all make a difference.

If you are reading my blog I must warn you that I am not impartial. I want to influence you. I want to make you stop for just a moment and consider the effect of a lifetime of seemingly insignificant decisions and how making small delicious choices can change the world.

I believe that we can change the world one bite at a time.

It's a delicious revolution.
