Borough Students Helped to Love Food Hate Waste
Borough students have been given a helping hand to save money by being food savvy this new academic year.
Council officers attended the freshers’ fayre at Solihull College last week to give students hints and tips from the Love Food Hate Waste Campaign.
Students were advised on how to prepare the perfect sized portions, given recipes to make the most of their leftovers and tips on how to better plan their meals and shopping to cut down how much they waste.
Councillor Mrs Kate Wild, Cabinet Member for Community Services, said: “Food waste is a major issue that costs an awful lot of money – each year, we throw away 7.2 million tonnes of edible food, around £12 billion worth. This is why learning good practice early on is crucial and I hope these students will find these tips help them make the most of their food.”
