Mew classes to help Sheffield families reduce food wastage

A new community cooking project will help families in Sheffield save up to £700 a year by reducing the amount of food they throw away.

The Love Food Hate Waste project will see cooking classes launched in Sheffield in the new year, run by the Children’s Food Trust Let’s Get Cooking team.

As well as learning how to cook healthy meals from scratch, people will be taught how to make the most of left over ingredients, portioning, storing food efficiently and shopping smarter to save money and avoid waste.

Around 20 coordinators are being recruited across Sheffield to run the cooking classes.
