Did you know that 24 million slices of bread are wasted on average every day in the UK?

North London Waste Authority has commissioned Keep Britain Tidy to deliver a series of free cookery workshops hosted by local schools aimed at helping you reduce your bread waste at home.

Each workshop kicks off with a demonstration by our professional chefs of how to make a delicious bread and butter pudding, before moving on to the main part of the workshop where you’ll get the chance to make and eat a delicious panzanella salad with bread croutons.

The workshop is child friendly, so please do feel free to bring your little ones along! In fact, all Islington residents are welcome, so feel free to invite your friends and family!
