Demonstrations to help you love your leftovers…

Everyone loves delicious food, but it is easy for the food we buy to end up in the bin – in fact, 44% of Victorians admit to spending money on food that is rarely or never eaten!  Join chef Ben Mac from the Social Food Project for a cooking demonstration dedicated to reducing food waste at home. Covering meal planning, food storage and being creative with left overs, this event will help you save time and money and help avoid food waste.

Part of the City of Melbourne’s Love Food Hate Waste program, you’ll get great recipes using fresh, seasonal produce from Queen Victoria Market, handy food-saving tips and lots of delicious taste testing.melbourne.vic.gov.au/lovefoodhatewaste
