Become a London Food Champion

Love Food Hate Waste are looking for volunteers to help pass on tips to help people across London to waste less food.

www.lovefoodhatewaste.com

We know from our research that giving people the skills, confidence and enthusiasm to go out and pass on the Love Food Hate Waste messages, via businesses, councils and community groups is a really effective way of reaching a lot of people to help them throw less food away.

In London, Love Food Hate Waste is supporting a community lead initiative which they hope will continue for years across . They are looking for volunteers to help pass on Love Food Hate Waste tips and advice on to others, providing as little or as much time as they can. You will receive full training and your local Volunteer Co-ordinator will be there on hand to offer support and advice along the way.

Once you're ready to go these are just some activities you could think about:

  • Run a Love Food Hate Waste week at work
  • Encourage others to join our network of Food Champions
  • Organise for a few friends or colleagues to get together so you can pass on Love Food Hate Waste tips and advice
  • Ask local parenting groups, allotment groups, food groups if they'd like a talk from you
  • Provide support to your Local Authority when they are running events
  • Get together a group to take the food waste challenge

...or anything at all to make sure we help as many people as possible across London waste less food, save money and help the environment. Pass on your top tips and advice to friends, family, neighbours and colleagues at home or at work

Using the free, downloadable material on their partners website to put up Love Food Hate Waste posters in your local area (doctor’s surgeries, schools, shops, markets, community centres etc); ask the local press to feature an article about what you are doing; write an article for a local newsletter; organise a stand at a local fair, supermarket, farmer’s market, food fair; use Facebook and Twitter to promote the campaign; write a blog about your experience as a volunteer.
