Become a London Food Champion

Become a London Food Champion

We are looking for volunteers to help us 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.

Love Food Hate Waste aims to raise awareness of the need to reduce food waste and help us take action. It shows that by doing some easy practical everyday things in the home we can all waste less food, which will ultimately benefit our purses and the environment too.

We throw away 7.2 million tonnes of food and drink from our homes every year, costing us £12bn - most of this could have been eaten. It's bad for the environment too.

In London we are supporting a community led initiative which we hope will continue for years across London. We are looking for volunteers to help us 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:

  • Pass on your top tips and advice to friends, family, neighbours and colleagues at work
  • 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
  • Organise a stand at a local fair, farmer’s market or festival
  • Use Facebook and Twitter to promote the campaign
  • Run a Love Food Hate Waste week at work
  • 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
  • ...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.
