The Less Waste Kitchen: how to make food last and reduce waste

Food production has an immense carbon footprint. Unfortunately, between 20 – 40 percent of the edible food we bring into our homes goes to compost or winds up generating methane in landfills.


In this workshop, we’ll talk about keeping the planet in mind when shopping for, storing, and preparing food, and for handling leftovers.


You’re sure to discover a few new ways to reduce waste and save money:
  • learning to keep lettuce fresh,
  • knowing what to store in the fridge and what goes in the cupboard,
  • understanding the dates on canned goods and dairy products,
  • using fewer disposables,
  • knowing what to grab if you can’t find a chip clip,
  • making use of a “Eat Me First” bin,
  • and more!


There will also be an opportunity to share your own favorite tips and tricks with other participants, as well as a Q&A.
