Birmingham aim to reduce food waste

Love Food, Hate Waste are working with Birmingham City Council and The Central England Co-operative on an 18 month project to reduce food waste across the city.  They are running a number of initiatives, one of which is to free workshops for organisations, community groups and business to help people make the most of their food – storing, freezing, planning … all the things which cause us to throw food away, even with the best intentions.

All that’s needed is a room and anyone you can get along to the training – we can run quick sessions at  team meetings or something longer as a way of engaging the community in sustainability or money saving – the outline is attached.  Please get in touch if you are interested or would like to know more.  As an alternative, we do have some open sessions running in January 2015:

BMI                                                                                                  16 January 1.30pm – 5pm

Birmingham City Council Offices, Victoria Square                      21 January 9.30am – 1pm

Birmingham City Council Offices, Victoria Square                       22 January 6.30pm – 8.30pm

All the sessions are free and attendees are given guides, posters, etc to take away to help spread the word.
