According to CSIRO data, throwing out a kilo of beef wastes the 50,000 litres of water it took to produce that meat. Throwing out one kilo of rice wastes 1,550 litres and discarding one kilo of potatoes wastes 500 litres of water.

In an effort to show the community how to reduce food waste at home, a free Love Food Save Money cooking workshop will be held on Tuesday 31 March from 6.30pm until 9pm at the Byron Bay Preschool, Coogera Centre, in Bottlebrush Crescent, Suffolk Park.

The workshop is coordinated by North East Waste and Byron Shire Council, supported by the Environmental Trust as part of the NSW EPA’s Waste Less Recycle More initiative, funded from the waste levy.

North East Waste has a Love Food Challenge at www.newaste.org.au and The Love Food Hate Waste Challenge Facebook page has tools, tips, and recipes on how to use leftovers.

Bookings are essential: contact Linda at 0427 770 198 or sign up at  www.lovefoodsavemoney.eventbrite.com.au.
