AN OPEN-AIR cookery demo will show shoppers how to use less food and cut down on waste today (Tuesday), as part of a national campaign.
The mouth-watering event, which will be held in All Saints’ Square from 2.30pm, will see a chef and professional range wheeled into the open.
The Love Food Hate Waste scheme aims to raise awareness of what we waste in the kitchen.
Across the UK, 7.3 million tonnes of food waste is binned each year — costing £60 a month per household, or £13 billion a year nationwide.
South Yorkshire’s BDR (Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster) Waste Partnership is backing the campaign with events around the county.
As well as cooking demos, information will be made available at supermarkets, offices and community buildings.
Giveaways will include recipe cards, reusable shopping bags, rice scoops and measuring spoons.
Residents will also be asked to sign a pledge, agreeing to cut kitchen waste and share the scheme with friends and family on social media.
