Changeworks are helping householders save up to £437 a year by delivering Love Food Hate Waste workshops online. Attendees learn how to save money through menu planning, shopping smartly and using up leftovers.
Scottish households throw out 600,000 tonnes of food each year and 60% of the food thrown out from households could have been avoided had the food been managed differently.
Changeworks have adapted their dynamic in person sessions to be interactive online. The hour-long workshop covers the environmental and economic implications of wasting food and attendees are empowered with skills and steps they can take home.
So far Changeworks has hosted sessions for a variety of employers and community groups across Edinburgh and Scotland, with attendees pledging to make a change to reduce their food waste.
