Work in hospitality or foodservice and want to save food, money and the planet? Celebrate this year’s Food Waste Action Week by attending this two-hour interactive, Guardians of Grub food waste workshop – it covers what you can do to start reducing food waste in your business.
Better Bankside is a supporting partner of Guardians of Grub, a campaign which offer free, practical tools and training to empower professionals across the Hospitality and Food Service sector to take a stand against wasted food.

The session will cover the tools the Guardians of Grub has to help, and why getting behind the campaign and saving food is so much more than just a cost saving opportunity.

Plus, Andrea Zick, Guardians of Grub ambassador and food waste researcher from the Oxo Tower, will share her food-saving insights and experiences of using the Guardians of Grub toolbox to reduce Oxo Tower’s food waste.

The session is open to anyone working in hospitality and foodservice so bring the whole team, from the business owner/site manager and the head/exec chef to the kitchen porter.

The Guardians of Grub programme is a free of charge tool box and training for all catering organisations. The FREE Guardians of Grub Cost Saving Skills Course is an excellent induction module which is relevant to all members of staff, so feel free to get everyone involved. There is no limit to numbers using the learning.

Our hosts are passionate about feeding people not bins, in whatever catering context. Ensuring that as much food as possible is prepared, sold or donated can help to make a difference to people and the planet as well as protecting business profits.
Let’s unite to save money, resources and do our bit to save the planet.
