Haddenham Food Waste Project launches this Saturday

We're launching our exciting new food waste reduction project this Saturday morning, 5th March, at the Village Hall: an easy online challenge giving you practical advice on how to reduce the amount of food you throw away.

The first 50 to sign up will receive a delicious free food sample from our friends at Waste2Taste.

But you could also save yourself a lot of money.

Did you know that the average family could save £60 a month or a whopping £720 a year by not throwing away good food?

To sign up, come to the Zero Carbon Haddenham stall next to Café Zero at the Vale Harvest market in the village hall on 5th March, between 9am and 1pm. Don't worry if you can't make it on the day though, just email cutfoodwaste@zeroch.org.

As well as saving money, you'll also be doing your bit for the planet: reducing wasted food is one of the five key targets of Haddenham Parish Councils climate emergency plan. Did you know that...

About third of all food produced for human consumption is left uneaten, unused, or discarded.

If food waste were a country, it would be the third largest emitter of carbon emissions globally.

We've set ourselves a target of getting 50 households to sign up for this pilot, so please come on down and help us out, do your bit for the environment and start saving!
