Bringing together learnings from all of our food campaigns to cut food waste in Norfolk and Suffolk

£810 per year (or £70 per month) is what the average UK family with kids could save by reducing their food waste. It's a stat not to be sniffed at and the benefits to the environment are pretty substantial too.

To help households cut food waste we've joined forces with Norfolk and Suffolk councils to launch #FoodSavvy, a campaign to promote the simple and easy things that we can all to do make sure that food avoids the bin. Our ambition is to cut waste by 20% by 2025 in alignment with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

To achieve this, we've brought together all of our learnings from years of running food campaigns, to create a hubbub around the issue, including the Food Savvy Lunch Club, Festive Freeze, Travellers Check, Community Fridge, Food Savvy Challenge and Banana Drama.

The difference made

Between 2018-2019 we worked with over 30 local organisations including major regional employers, community groups and local bloggers and vloggers to run nine new #FoodSavvy campaigns.
 
We’ve reached more than 12,560 people through physical events, engaged thousands more online and generated over 218 pieces of media coverage in the first year.  

You can find out more about how we did it and see the difference made in our Year One impact report. Read our latest press release here.
