Lambeth and Southwark residents are invited to get food waste savvy this Halloween.
In partnership with Lambeth and Southwark councils, we're hosting a healthy Halloween cooking event to inspire you with wholesome autumn recipes that are not only delicious but help reduce food waste.
The event is in support of the London-wide Small Change Big Difference campaign, which promotes sustainable food behaviours and healthy eating.
On the day you'll learn tricks on how to squash food waste forever, while stirring up some tasty Halloween treats that won't scare your dentist.
What's on offer?
There'll be throughout the day from Sneaky Veg chef, oast your pumpkin seeds and turn spooky lantern leftovers into a winter warming curry!
The Veolia team will also be on hand - ready to recycle inedible food and provide advice on its composting and food waste recycling services.
Bring the whole family - we'll see you there!
Date: Sunday 20 October
Where: Herne Hill market, Railton Road, SE24 0JN
