Flipping leftovers on pancake day to save food waste

The average UK family throws away £800 worth of food a year that could have been eaten. Thinking of something to give up for lent? Why not try giving up food waste!

Pancakes are the perfect vehicle for transforming lingering leftovers. Every cuisine seems to have its own version of the humble pancake and with good reason - they’re so flippin’ versatile and delicious. So stick up two prongs to food waste and tuck in with these tasty recipes from around the world! You can follow the campaign with #FlippingFoodWaste.
