Prior to the commencement of the course , participants will be asked to undertake a short survey which will take a few minutes to complete. We’ll also encourage you to have your friends and neighbours do the same. A follow-up survey will also be completed in June to identify any lasting benefits as a result of the programme.


We are producing 20,000 Stop Food Waste calendar for distribution in early December. Participating will receive a copy for each household in their community. The calendars will be packed full of helpful hints and tips based upon the experience of course participants.
