This course has been designed to help you reduce waste in your kitchen and dining room. It will help your catering service to become more efficient and environmentally friendly. It draws on our experience of working with schools to help them run an effective and economic school meal service.

The course is relevant to schools and early years settings that are involved with local authority catering contracts, local catering suppliers or those who run an in house service, employing the school cook and catering staff directly.

Through step-by-step information, this course aims to help you understand:

  • where waste can occur
  • why reducing waste is so important
  • why involving the whole school in reducing waste is so important
  • tools and techniques for reducing the level of waste within school food.
