Save A Crust: Free cookery workshops demonstrate how to avoid bread waste and save money

Bread is a staple food in many households, yet up to 24 million slices of bread are wasted every day in the UK. In order to help households avoid bread waste and save money, North London Waste Authority has commissioned Keep Britain Tidy to hold some free cookery workshops to show residents how they can get creative with leftover bread.

Seven free cookery workshops will be held, one in each north London borough, with qualified professional chefs allowing residents to get more involved and try their hand at cooking bread-based dishes themselves. Tips and tools to help participants prevent food waste will be provided throughout the events, which will include demonstrations and practical cooking activities.

The events will be held across north London from now until March.

  1. Is composting not a thing in UK? I have no clue which is why I ask.
    We compost here and the city picks up food scraps, tissue and paper towels and turns it into soil which we can use for gardening come late Spring.

    1. It is, but the service is really patchy – so each council will have their own policy on composting and have a lot of restrictions – so for instance, where I live, the council don’t give caddy bins or offer food recycling to certain flats, which is really lame of the council. Hence the reason why a lot of people do their own composting and have wormeries too. Talking to people who have moved to the UK, I get a sense that the UK has been a lot slower re: recycling and food recycling than say places like Australia, Canada and California where it is the norm and has been for sometime
