Communities - Small Change Big Difference

As part of the Small Change Big Difference Campaign Groundwork London are working with WRAP and London Waste and Recycling Board to deliver a series of interactive food waste workshops to community groups across nine boroughs.

The aim of the campaign is to increase knowledge and awareness, as well as change behaviours around food waste, which includes getting creative with leftovers, recycling food for compost, thinking about storage and shopping habits and other behaviours that can prevent food waste. 

We offer two types of workshop for community groups:

Workshop Series

A series of four interactive workshops on preventing food waste through storage and shopping tricks to healthy and sustainable eating - choosing foods that are both good for us and the planet, as well as food recycling do's and don'ts. 

The workshops foster shared learning with participants being encouraged to share their own tips and tricks with the rest of the group. Everyone gets involved in cooking a tasty one-pot meal as well as the chance to grow their own microgreens.

Previous participants have walked away with new found inspiration and knowledge to save money and reduce waste as well as making new friends and gaining confidence in the kitchen.

If you are or know of a community group in the boroughs listed below who would benefit from these workshops please get in touch via: or 0207 9604283

Participanting boroughs: Lambeth, Hackney, Bexley, Merton, Croydon, Hounslow, Sutton, Islington, Tower Hamlets

Training Session

Our bite-sized training session is for those who are passionate about the environment and want to make a difference in their community. 

It focuses on providing participants with the key campaign messages and tools so they can share with their networks. Organising meat-free Monday's at work, hosting an event or starting a leftovers club are all fun and engaging ways of getting more people actively involved in reducing food waste and in this workshop participants will pick up lots of ideas to inspire others to take part.

This session is available to all London boroughs so please get in touch if you would like to find out more or book a session for your community group. or 0207 9604283
