Love Food, Hate Waste - Food Skills Research

 Healthy Futures has been commissioned to carry out research on behalf of WRAPs 'Love Food Hate Waste' (LFHW) campaign. We will gather insight from community food schemes throughout the UK to highlight the food skills people develop following participation in community cooking courses. 

LFHW aims to raise awareness of food waste and helps everyone reduce the amount of food we throw away. Through this research we hope to identify the resource, practical support and information community food programmes are using to encourage participants to reduce food waste whilst learning more about cooking, food safety and good nutrition. 

Examples of food projects that support the public to develop their food skills include Brighton and Hove Food Partnership and Community Food and Health Scotland. We have identified public, private and third sector organisations throughout the UK delivering a range of activities who we will invite to take part in the research. This is an exciting opportunity to show how community food programmes support both 'Health and Wellbeing' and 'Sustainability' agendas.
