No Waste Cook Club – Zero Waste Cooking workshops

Learn about the impacts of food waste on the environment and valuable tips and tricks for effective meal planning at Council’s free zero-waste cooking workshops!

Led by an experienced Open Table facilitator, participants will learn how to save money on grocery bills and waste less food.

There will also be a ‘no waste cooking demonstration’, using foods that are often thrown away.

Attendees will be able to ask questions and share their zero-waste cooking experiences, and will also receive recipes and resources to continue their journey to zero waste!

Workshops will cover:

  • Food Waste: a brief overview of the impact of food waste on the environment and exactly how much edible food we waste in the average Australian household.
  • Planning: how to effectively meal plan to save on grocery bills and waste less food
  • Food storage: easy ways to store food in the pantry, fridge and freezer to achieve maximum freshness and longevity (includes a demonstration of refreshing droopy vegetables)
