One third of food is wasted when it could be reduced, reused and recycled. This fab­ulous food waste train­ing course will equip you with the skills, know­ledge and inform­a­tion needed to engage schools and com­munit­ies in redu­cing food waste.

You will observe the highly enga­ging ‘Finish Your Food with Mr Silly Sausage’ pro­ject in action and learn about the tech­niques employed to tackle wastage. The ‘Finish Your Food’ pro­ject is an excel­lent way to sup­port Eco Schools ini­ti­at­ives and reduce food waste in school. Learn how pupils become act­ive cit­izens as they raise aware­ness at home with the ‘Plate Pledge’ fam­ily chal­lenge and the whole com­munity is effect­ively engaged in food waste reduction.
