Love Food Hate Waste has joined forces with award-winning pop-up restaurant Hang Fire Smokehouse to show the people of Cardiff how to use their leftover beef to make some delicious, simple meals on Monday 14 March from 11am to 2.30pm.
At the stand outside the Capitol Shopping Centre on the corner of Queen Street and Churchill Way, they will be giving the public tips on how best to use their beef leftovers, as well as free tasty treats using cooked beef commonly wasted by consumers.
The latest campaign from Love Food Hate Waste (LFHW) reveals that every year people in the UK throw away 34,000 tonnes of beef – the equivalent to 300 million beef burgers.
Research carried out by LFHW, an organisation that aims to raise awareness of the need to reduce food waste and help the public take action, shows much of the waste, worth £260 million annually, could be avoided by taking simple steps, such as planning meals in advance, understanding date labels, storing food better, serving the right portions and cooking with leftovers.
Visitors to the stand who make a basic pledge to change the way they use meat at home to avoid waste, such as planning meals in advance, will be entered into a prize draw to win a kettle BBQ worth £100.
Come on down with your friends, family or colleagues, learn some quick tips, make a pledge and be in with a chance to win a kettle BBQ worth £100, whilst sampling some tasty smoked meat treats.
