On Monday we welcomed Toby from the North London Waste Authority to our longest running Get Together at The Duke of Cambridge to speak about how to waste less food and save more money as part of the ‘Love Food Hate Waste’ campaign.

It was another brilliant talk, really opening our eyes to the facts and figures around food waste – such as 37 million slices of bread being thrown away by UK households every day!

We guessed at best portion sizes, using the helpful measuring cups and spaghetti measurers Toby provided, as well as sharing our own advise on how to store fresh food and tell when something is going off.

It was a great afternoon, and we all learnt something new!

Thank you Toby!

Join us at more interesting talks, or just pop in for a cuppa and a chat! We meet at The Duke of Cambridge pub, 33 St Peters St, Angel, every Monday (except Bank Hols) from 12 – 2pm. 

Call Activities Manager Ellie Shipman for more information on 0207 281 6018.
