DIY Dinner DIY Dinner - Learn to cook & cut food waste

WEDNESDAYS - 4.30pm-6.30pm

Running for six weeks with a mid-term break

Venue: Bideford College

Devon County Council is running a series of free six-week cookery courses to teach residents to cook a range of basic meals while covering the top tips that help reduce food waste at home.

Eight ‘DIY Dinner’ courses will take place in towns across the county during January and February in another example of the council’s commitment to help communities reduce food waste and carbon emissions in support of the Devon Climate Declaration.

Each course will be led by an experienced community food worker and will include recipes from Recycle Devon’s newly launched cook book ‘Have Your Food and Eat It’. Every week, course participants will take home a meal for four that they have cooked.

In addition, the sessions will give guidance on how to reduce food waste, for instance, through meal planning, proper storage and understanding the difference between Best Before and Use By dates.
