Waste Minimisation

Feed the 1,000 Did you know…

1,000 meals could be made with the amount of leftovers and uneaten food the average family throws away each year?

Havering Council is getting ready to feed one thousand people for free, to highlight the true cost of food waste. The feed The 1,000 event, which takes place on Friday 13 October and Saturday 14 October, at The Brewery, Romford, is being run by the Council, with funding from Sainsbury’s as part of its Waste Less Save More campaign. During the two days, 1,000 free portions of food will be given away to residents and visitors. To get involved and eat for free all you need to do is make a pledge at the stall,

promising to make one small change to help reduce your food waste at home. How about freezing your bread or using a pasta/spaghetti measurer to work out the correct portion? Our Community Chefs will be at the event cooking up pasta dishes that can be made from leftovers and commonly wasted foods or typical fridge items. The Council's Waste Minimisation Team Officers will also be on hand to offer advice and information about how you can save up to £60 a month by wasting less food.
