How would you like to save £430 every year? That’s the question asked by Zero Waste Scotland’s ‘Love Food Hate Waste’ campaign.  With thanks to Mark Beresford.

£430 is the average value of food wasted per year by people in Scotland.

On 16th May Aberdeen Forward will be hosting an event called  “Love Food” in association with Pampered Chef, which aims to help you save money with tips and advice, fancy recipes for your leftovers, and the chance to get involved with an interactive cooking demo.

Ruth Morris (an independent Pampered Chef Consultant) will be hosting a fun, interactive cooking show that will provide attendees with the opportunity to try innovative multifunctional kitchen tools while learning to prepare impressive recipes quickly.

In addition, our own Gillian Marr will be on hand to provide helpful tips and advice along the ‘Love Food Hate Waste’ theme, including how to shop smart to save money, making clever use of leftovers and how to make your food last longer.

Following the interactive demonstration, you’ll be able to enjoy the tasty results and be given the opportunity to purchase Pampered Chef products which you have tried out on the day. These are all highly popular and high quality kitchen tools which come in a wide variety to meet every price level.

The event is totally free to attend with no obligation to pay for anything, and will be held on:

16th May, 7pm-9pm at Aberdeen Forward’s Sustainable Communities Centre at 2 Poynernook Road, Aberdeen.

Anyone who would like to attend should simply call Aberdeen Forward on 01224 560 360 to book a place.
