February 2017 Sccadmin July 7, 2017 Archive Fall in love with food – yes, every mouthful matters 13/02/2017 5:55 pm Food is produced with oodles of love and together we can make a real difference by throwing away less food from our homes. To help anyone do better in making their love for food go further, Sustainable Wells Food Group and Somerset Waste Partnership invite you to Kitchen Confidential, a special event to unlock the secrets to love food, hate waste and saving money. Join us in Wells on Saturday 11 March for a free, thought-provoking morning session over a cuppa and cake. Together, we will take a guilt-free look at the food we waste, why it happens and share helpful habits to reduce our food bills and the cost to the environment. Through a combination of talks, discussion and activities, you will discover fascinating food facts, easy life-hacks to make the most of your food, and tips to help us all become more confident and creative in the kitchen. It is not often that “doing your bit” is as simple as keeping food out of the bin, but with just a few small changes every day, we can cut food waste at home and save up to £60 a month. Book your place at Kitchen Confidential early to avoid disappointment. And remember to bring your questions, suggestions, ideas and leftover recipes tips to share. It will be a lively event. Not able to join us at the Seager Hall (Wells United Church), but want to know more? Visit the national campaign lovefoodhatewaste.com. Want to do more in your community? If you care about good food, cutting costs, driving down waste and helping other do the same, why not become a Somerset Food Champion volunteer with Somerset Waste Partnership? An optional supplementary session after Kitchen Confidential will help equip you to engage and encourage others to explore the issues, make better use of food and slim our food bins. To help you do this if you decide to get involved, you will receive on-going support, tools and resources, and the chance to work with other volunteers.
