On this week’s Food for Thought I’ve been finding out more about food waste in the UK and how we can help to stop it. I’ve also been looking at the lab grown beef burger and would love to know what you think about it. Would you fancy eating one?
Finding out the some of the food you’ve bought has gone mouldy or is well past its expiration date is annoying. It’s also harmful to the environment to waste that food and have to throw it away as well as wasteful to your wallet.
To find out more about how to make good use of leftovers as well as tips and hints to help out when food shopping I spoke to Gill Matheson about the campaign Love Food Hate Waste. She’s a local partnership advisor for WRAP, who are behind Love Food Hate Waste.
Gill popped into the studio to talk about stopping food waste in general, as well as give advice on how to store food throughout the year, considering how to store food carefully during the summer months. Love Food Hate Waste also have a calendar of events to help people out with new food saving ideas every month. This month it is a students guide to a stir fry to help students save money and food.
You can listen to Food for Thought on Siren FM every Wednesday at 2pm, repeated on Saturday at 3pm.
