British Food Fortnight

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

Love Food Hate Waste Roadshow

Fifty thousand pounds worth of savings were made through reduced waste disposal costs, thanks to the ‘Oxfordshire Waste Campaign’ last year.

Oxfordshire council-tax payers have saved over £50,000 in waste disposal costs by throwing away less food since Oxfordshire Waste Partnership launched its Love Food Hate Waste campaign last March in conjunction with Pudding Pie Cookery School, offering practical advice on how to reduce waste and shopping bills.

We are delighted to have been involved in reducing food waste and are delighted to announce that we have been asked to run events again this year during the British Food Fortnight from the 18th Sept – 3rd October.

We will post a schedule of where we will be as soon as we can.

Pudding Pie Cookery School, educating and saving people money.
