Corby Council has been giving out information and leaflets as part of its For the Love of Food campaign to maximise the use of food waste.

The council’s environmental team were at the Corby Cube on Friday, October 30, to hand out leaflets which included simple recipes to encourage people to use leftover food to make meals.

They were on hand to answer questions from residents and gave out tips on how to keep your shopping bill as low as possible.

Corby Council lead member for environment Cllr Mark Pengelly said: “While we offer a food waste collection in Corby, which has helped to raise the borough’s recycling figures significantly, we also want to remind residents that the most environmentally friendly way forward is to work towards reducing our food waste altogether.

“The For the love of Food campaign offers some great advice and tips on how to waste as little food as possible and I hope that lots of residents will get on board.”

Anyone who didn’t manage to pick up a booklet and would like to see what recipes and advice it offers can download an electronic version by visiting the council website and searching “for the love of food”.
