21Nov2013: Love Food, Hate Waste workshop

If food waste is something that annoys you then would you like to attend a workshop on the subject so that you can then help others in our area to reduce the amount of food they waste? South Hams District Council is arranging a Love Food, Hate Waste workshop on 21st November at the West Devon Borough Council offices in Kilworthy Park Tavistock starting at 10am. There are only 25 places available so you'll probably need to book soon.

To book for the workshop and for more details contact:

Waste Minimisation and Recycling Officer

What is the issue?
UK households alone waste £12 billion worth good food and drink each year, costing the average
family with children £680 a year, or around £50 a month. Most of this food and drink waste could
have been avoided if only we’d eaten it in time, or knew how much food to prepare, and what
we could do with our leftovers.
Why does food waste matter?
Wasting food and drink is a waste of money. It is also an unnecessary waste of energy and
natural resources which went into the production, storage, preparation, packaging and
transportation of that food. If we could stop throwing good food away, we could save the
equivalent carbon emissions as taking 1 in 5 cars off UK roads.
Love Food Hate Waste is a national initiative to try and address this issue. It offers practical tips
about a range of food-saving measures, from planning to food portioning, and from better food
storage to using up leftovers. More details about this initiative can be found at:
www.lovefoodhatewaste.com
How can we help you?
If you would like to get involved, we offer training sessions for a range of organisations including
local authorities, businesses and community groups, who wish to take an active role in reducing
food waste. The incentive for this might be to help your staff/group members/volunteers/local
community reduce their food waste, or to assist your customers in saving money on food that
might otherwise have been thrown away, or alternatively to contribute towards your
organisation’s Corporate Social Responsibility.
The training covers the background and issues around food waste; the key behaviours to help
reduce food waste; and support on engaging with others/passing the messages on. The training
session lasts approximately 3.5 hours, but there is flexibility in this, which your Local Partnership
Adviser is happy to discuss with you to ensure it meets your needs. It is designed to be fun and
interactive and includes practical activities.
At the end of the session, attendees will:
? Understand the significance of food waste, its causes and consequences
? Have an awareness of what steps food manufacturers, suppliers and retailers are taking
to help us all waste less food
? Understand Love Food Hate Waste tips and advice, and know how they themselves can
benefit from this
? Be able to engage with others on Love Food Hate Waste, and help share the benefits
? Be able to plan, deliver and monitor the outcome of their activities and communication
around Love Food Hate Waste, using new and existing opportunities available to them
? Know how to access information and resources to support them in spreading the
message
Get Involved in Reducing Food Waste
Fully funded Training and Workshops
A full support pack will be provided, which includes a comprehensive handbook, and copies of all
the activities used in the training, as well as a planning sheet and an event tracker neatly stored
on a memory stick. Attendees will also receive a certificate of attendance to acknowledge their
involvement in this national initiative. On-going support is available through monthly online
newsletters and via our partners website.
How can you help us?
In return for the free training, resources and support, we hope that you will do what you can to
pass on the Love Food Hate Waste tips and advice to as many people as possible, so that even
more people can share the benefits.
We will support your endeavours wherever we can, and will send you a monthly electronic
newsletter full of ideas, new material and inspiring events and stories from a growing community
of like-minded people. You will also be able to discuss the possibility of on-going support with
your trainer.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to discuss any of the above, or to arrange
some training.
