Brighton Love Food Hate Waste project takes awareness campaign to Hove Sainsbury's
11:50am Wednesday 6th February 2013 in News
Tips on how to use up your leftovers and save up to £50 a month will be handed out for free this week.
The Brighton branch of the Love Food Hate Waste campaign will be at Sainsbury’s in West Hove on Friday, February 8 and Saturda, February 9 between 10am and 3pm.
Chef Olly Dawson will be demonstrating how the supermarket’s unsold bread can be turned into tasty leftover dishes for customers to sample.
Vera Zakharov, Love Food Hate Waste co-ordinator in Brighton, said: “This is not just about keeping money in your pocket – tackling food waste eases our environmental impact and addresses social justice issues as well, and we all must do our part.
“Changes start with how we plan our meals – we’ll be sharing tips with shoppers as they go in and out of the supermarket, to help them make the most of their purchases.
“Our chef will be dishing out tasters and our team will be on hand to give cookery advice, as well as food storage tips and composting information.”
Judith Batchelar, own brand expert at Sainsbury’s, said: “We’ve run several customer campaigns to help them make their food go further, including Love Your Leftovers with meal idea recipe cards and food storage tips as well as championing ugly fruit and veg.
“Just a few more minutes of preparation can help us all minimise waste.”
