Save A Crust - North London Food Waste Prevention Events

This winter, Keep Britain Tidy is working with the North London Waste Authority to bring the people of north London a range of events, with the aim to highlight and tackle the issue of bread waste.

Bread waste is just one part of the wider food waste problem, with the average UK family wasting an estimated £800 worth of food every year. In the UK alone, households waste 24 million slices of bread per day, amounting to 900,000 tonnes of bread per year, equivalent in weight to 19 Titanics.

Between January and March 2019, we’ll be holding a number of FREE events for residents from the seven north London boroughs - including a live cookery demonstration at Hollywood Green in Haringey, where you will have the chance to taste and learn some delicious recipes - all using bread - such as panzanella and ribollita soup, as well as a series of cookery workshops. Attendees of the FREE hands-on cookery workshops will be able to try their hand at cooking some delicious bread-based dishes themselves. Places are limited to 20 per workshop so booking is essential.

If you can’t wait for the events and want to get inspired, download the FREE downloadable North London Food Lovers Cookbook, which includes some great recipes for left over stale bread.
