Hampshire Kitchen Heroes features over 20 different food waste saving actions. People can earn ‘Green Points’ by taking steps like checking their fridge before they shop, keeping a food diary of what’s being wasted and sharing their favourite recipes using leftovers. These points feed into leader boards allowing people to compete with other residents across the county to be the ultimate Kitchen Hero.
The resident who earns the most ‘Green Points’ for their actions each month, will win a £20 voucher from a choice of Hampshire-based experiences, Marks and Spencer, Love2Shop or for a donation to be made to a local food bank.
Hampshire Kitchen Heroes is open to all residents in the Hampshire County Council local authority area - sign up at: hampshirekitchenheroes.co.uk
In addition to the new website, the Council’s Smart Living team is seeking resident s’ views on food waste through its annual survey via Smart Living’s Facebook or Twitter channels.
Led, by the charity WRAP, Food Waste Action Week is a platform to highlight the issue and encourage people to take action to halt global food waste by 2030.
