It's definitely getting wintery, weatherwise, which means our food waste family are drawing closer to the end of their challenges. Still a few weeks to go though, so catch up on what they've been up to...

Week 4

Planning ahead is the theme, so they are challenged to know what meals they are going to eat each day. Cookery lessons with celebrity chef, Nigel Brown, are the tool to help, as well as a weekly meal planner which you can download from the national campaign's website. A quick feature on BBC Look North adds fame to their campaign!

Week 5

They go it alone! But Tina reports back on progress with an article in our our LincUp magazine. "I’ve learnt a lot from Love Food, Hate Waste and I’m sure that even keen cooks could learn something new. I’d definitely recommend their web site. It’s interesting how quickly my outlook on food has changed and I now try a lot harder to use up what’s in the fridge before it goes off, even compared to just a week or two ago."

Keep going Tina and Serena!!

Week 6

Surprise challenge week! The mystery challenge for Tina and Serena is...

Live out of the freezer! Not literally of course, although the colder weather is on us now.

The girls are given a budget of just £10 to stick to, and all other meals have to come out of their packed freezer and store cupboards. This should save some pennies for the festive season - and make more space for leftovers too!

Why not play along and see what UFOs are lurking in your freezer? (Unidentified Frozen Objects). For more info on what to freeze and how visit
