Free one-day course on offer to find Food Champions

Are you keen to meet new people in your community or develop your skills and confidence helping others? If so, do not miss this autumn’s training opportunities to join our volunteer Food Champions with a one-day course this coming weekend.

Somerset’s Food Champions scheme is expanding its network of volunteers who help local residents save money by wasting less food with a free training session on Saturday 12 November.

On average, UK families each throw away the equivalent of one in six meals  so Somerset Food Champions can play a vital part in helping their community reduce their food waste.

You do not need to be a food or cooking expert to be a Food Champion, just keen to waste less, recycle more, save cash – and help others to do the same.

We can show you easy ways to save money and cut food waste, so you can pass on those ideas to friends, neighbours and others in ways that suit you. You do not need to be an expert, just keen to help others waste less, recycle more and save cash.

The next Food Champions training opportunity is on Saturday 12 November in Shepton Mallet, 10am-4pm, at The Committee Room, Mendip District Council.

Food Champions have access to a range of resources and display materials to help them bring the message to life and the scheme offers reasonable travel expenses to help our volunteers reach out into their Somerset communities.
