Join us this summer for some totally RUBBISH talks!

UK households bin 4.5 million tonnes of food that could have been eaten every year. It would fill eight Wembley Stadiums and the carbon associated with it is equivalent to that from one in five cars. Wasting food costs £60 per month for the average family with children … that’s over £700 a year.

Explore why food waste is such a big problem and what to do about it with ‘food waste lady’ Helen White from WRAP. Find out how you and your community can fight food waste – and how to freeze cheese.

Helen works with food retailers, manufacturers and brands on engaging with citizens to reduce food waste and is WRAP’s spokesperson on household food waste She has played a key role in defining WRAP’s approach to citizen food waste prevention, developing the Love Food Hate Waste campaign and advises WRAP’s behaviour change interventions team.

This event is part of our Love it for Longer season of events
