Love Food Hate Waste roadshows come to Neston & Parkgate

Love Food Hate Waste is the 'Waste Not Want Not' of the modern day, providing handy tips, advice and recipes for leftovers to help everyone waste less food.
8.3 million tonnes of food is thrown away by households in the UK every year. Reducing food waste is a major issue and not just about good food going to waste. Wasting food costs the average family with children £680 a year and has serious environmental implications too.
If everyone stops wasting that much food, the CO2 impact would be the equivalent of taking one in four cars off the road.
It is not about asking people to eat less, just to make the most of the food that is bought and at the same time, help the environment.
As part of the 2010 Love Food Hate Waste campaign, a series of roadshows are taking place across the Cheshire West area in February and March. Residents will be able to find out quick and easy ways to reduce their food waste and keep their food costs down. There will also be opportunities to win food saving prizes.
Local dates: Friday 12th February & Friday 19th March, 7am-3pm at Neston Market, Brook St, Neston. Sunday 28th February, 9.30-3.30pm, Parkgate Parade.
