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.
