Recipes to Reduce Food Waste at Home
When our volunteers pick up a donation of surplus food from our generous suppliers, they have no idea what they are going to get. So our cooking teams need to be very creative when they decide what recipe they are going to use. This decision includes how many guests they are cooking for and how best to use the ingredients, so not a scrap of food goes to waste. Any ingredients that aren’t used in the meal are given to guests to take home with them.
Making sure we’re using up food in our projects and at home is one of the easiest ways we can nurture our planet. By planning meals and making the most of leftovers, we can save money, time spent shopping and even end up with extra meals to share with family, friends and neighbours.
We know how tricky it can be to use up leftover food at home, so we have collated 10 of the easiest and best recipes from the internet to use up leftovers and reduce food waste.
