What does the Challenge involve?
The Challenge runs over a 5 week period, where the majority of it will take place in your home. Firstly, you'll weigh your food waste at home for a 7 day period before the workshop, following the instructions in the information leaflet and recording it in your logbook.
You'll then attend an exclusive, free workshop which includes a low-waste cooking demonstration, where you'll be able to take delicious treats and recipe ideas back to your own kitchen. We'll also help you plan for how you're going to reduce your food waste at home.
After the workshop, you'll weigh your household food waste on a weekly basis for a 4 week period, keeping a record of the results in the logbook we give you.
To thank you for your taking part in the challenge, once you've shared with us your food waste logbook, we'll reward you with a £30 voucher eligible at high-street retailers and supermarkets.
How can you take part?
Anyone is welcome to take the challenge! Ideally you will live locally to Elizabeth House as we'll ask you to collect your sign-up pack from there.
There are limited spaces on the workshop so contact us soon at WastePreventionTeam@NLWA.gov.uk if you're interested in getting involved.
