13 May 2015 Love Food, Hate Waste?

Do you hate to throw away excess or out-of-date food? Then come along to the next FREE Living Lightly workshop on May 24 and learn how to cut food waste and save money.

 

“NSW households throw away $2.5 billion worth of edible food each year and, in doing so, waste the energy, water and natural resources used to grow, package, transport and market that food,” said Sian Nivison, Council’s Group Leader Community and Cultural Services.

 

“The Living Lightly ‘Love Food Hate Waste’ workshop aims to raise awareness about the impact of food waste in NSW and reduce the amount of good food we waste.

 

“This fun and practical workshop is designed to educate participants in how to reduce waste and save money through better planning, shopping and food storage.”

 

The workshop will be held at the Coffs Regional Community Gardens, on Sunday May 24  from 10:30am to 12.30pm. Lunch is provided and bookings are essential.

 

To book, visit www.ourlivingcoast.com.au or contact Coffs Harbour City Council on 6648 4643.

 

Living Lightly is a series of FREE workshops jointly run by Coffs Harbour City Council and Coffs Regional Community Gardens.

 

The ‘Love Food Hate Waste’ workshop is a partnership of the NSW Government, Mid Waste, Coffs Harbour Council and the Coffs Regional Community Gardens.
