Waste Not Want Not - Training in Manchester

Trafford Hall Training
Waste Not Want Not - Starting Your Own Community 'Waste' Project

11-12 April 2016

Trainers - Real Junk Food Manchester

§ Turning seasonal gluts in to beautiful products like jams, chutneys, pickles, and sauerkraut is an age old skill. The modern twist is taking food that would otherwise go to waste from the food industry, and using it to start a social enterprise or community project.

The Real Junk Food Project does just this, sourcing food that would go to waste from supermarkets, wholesalers, restaurants and many other sources, cooking it up into healthy nutritious meals, and serving them to anyone and everyone on a pay-as-you-feel basis.

With over 100 neighbourhood level projects operating around the UK, the Real Junk Food Project Network demonstrates a number of ways that local people can come together to reduce food waste, support local people in accessing food, and offer training and work opportunities.

Over two days, this course takes participants through the basics of;

§ an introduction to food safety issues

§ starting a social enterprise – the process of forming a legal organisation, setting up a bank account, social media and generating interest

§ Sourcing food that would otherwise go to waste

§ Finding premises

§ Different project models – from making preserves to running a community cafe

This course is £50 for the first volunteer booking and and £20 for each subsequent volunteer booking on from the same group.
