This summer Havering residents will be encouraged to think about what they’re throwing away in a bid to save themselves up to £60 a month and help tackle food waste in the borough.

This summer Havering residents will be encouraged to think about what they’re throwing away in a bid to save themselves up to £60 a month and help tackle food waste in the borough.

The Food Waste Challenge was officially launched at an event on Saturday 22 July at Romford Market. Punters received some practical tips and tricks on making the most of their leftovers and cutting the food bill. They also got to see our community chefs knocking up some quick, tasty and healthy dishes.

The Food Waste Challenge is being run by Havering Council and London Green Points. Residents who get involved in the challenge will be able to earn Green Points to spend in the online shop, transfer to high street vouchers, or donate to charity.

This is a great opportunity for residents to learn more about reducing food waste.

Thinking about what we buy, and how we use and dispose of leftovers can help us to reduce the amount of rubbish we’re throwing away, saving both residents and the Council money.”
