Love Food, Hate Waste is a worldwide movement aimed at reducing the amount of food wasted by households.

A series of free workshops will be run in the northern rivers region, with the first being held on Wednesday 29 August in Bangalow, followed by Tweed Heads and Murwillumbah.

Well-known ‘Farm to Fork’ chef and recipe writer, Alison Drover, will host the events.

Alison is passionate about cooking delicious meals using leftover ingredients. ‘Food is wasted because we buy too much, cook too much, don’t store food correctly and don’t use leftovers,’ says Alison.

Alison will provide simple, practical advice on how to reduce your weekly shopping and will have you cooking up delicious meals from ingredients lingering in the fridge or cupboard.

She will give hands-on demonstrations and there will be plenty of delicious food to sample. A Facebook page is also established. Visit www.facebook.com/LoveFoodHateWasteNorthernRivers.

Love Food, Hate Waste is made possible through NSW government and ACE community colleges funding, and is in partnership with Byron and Murwillumbah community colleges. To enrol for the Bangalow event, call Byron Community College on 6684 3374.
