Local households spend millions every year on perfectly good food which ends up in the bin. What a waste!
The good news is we can do something about it, and that only takes a few, simple changes to make big savings - as much as £800 a year for a local family*.
If you've come to this page, you are probably ready to make a change. To help you, the Love Food Hate Waste campaign has produced a great website, packed full of tasty recipe ideas and top tips to save you money. Just click here to go straight to the site.
We also have some delicious leftover recipes below from our 2021 Love Food Hate Waste Calendar, so be sure to check those out before you go.
*If you want to know how far £800 could stretch, check out our video here:
