City of Lethbridge encourages residents to take part in Waste Reduction Week

- Advertisement -

It’s Waste Reduction Week across Lethbridge and City officials are specifically focusing on food waste this year.

According to the City, about one-fifth of all groceries never make it to the dinner table and instead go directly to the garbage.

Residents are encouraged to improve that figure by joining a special challenge this week.

You’re asked to share your go-to recipes, tips and tricks to use up leftovers on social media using #LethbridgeLovesLeftovers

All of those leftover recipes will then be compiled into a unique, ‘made-in-Lethbridge’ recipe book after the challenge is done.

All those who take part in this Waste Reduction Week challenge will also be entered to win a free cooking class at Lethbridge College.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
