Kirklees Council has brought back their ‘Save Food Save Money’ workshops for Kirklees residents. The workshops will enable people to reduce their food waste.
Over 1000 residents said that they wanted to reduce the amount of food thrown away. As well as expressing interest in learning more through workshops.
What are the workshops about?
Reducing food waste is a part of the Council’s plans to help tackle the climate emergency.
Kirklees Council discovered that 36 per cent of the average Kirklees grey bin is food waste – most of which could have been eaten. By reducing food waste, you can save money and do your bit towards improving the climate emergency.
The council’s local community food worker, Bev, leads three one-hour workshops. The workshops cover how to prevent unnecessary food waste, cooking demonstrations and plenty of opportunities for top tips, food quizzes and Q&A.
“As accessible as possible.”
Colin Parr, Strategic Director for Environment and Climate Change, said:
“We are pleased to announce that our Save Money Save Food workshops are back. These workshops have been popular in the past and our waste engagement survey last year showed there is still an appetite for them.
“Running the sessions online has presented some challenges. However, hosting the workshops this way will hopefully help us to reach more residents across the borough and enable more people to take part. Each session will be repeated and run at different times of the day to make them as accessible as possible.”
You can take part by booking on Kirklees Council’s website.
