Wicklow Runs a Series of Food Waste Workshops

Wicklow County Council has run a number of Stop Food Waste workshops for householders based on the programme developed by CTC for use by local authorities.

Working with Tidy Towns groups and local community groups in the county has been a very successful way of ensuring high participation rates.

In 2016 alone Wicklow County Council ran six of these workshops, engaging with over 100 householders and distributing materials from the Stop Food Waste Programme such as: as spaghetti measures, rice measures, flyers, children and food waste guide, savvy shopper flyer, fridge magnets and shopping bags.

These events are a very successful way of spreading the Stop Food Waste message and those attending find them informative and fun, in turn spreading the word, by mouth or using social media – giving a much wider level of awareness raising.
