Online food workshops to support the work of Climate Action Fife

Two online food workshops to support the work of Climate Action Fife are being held next month to help locals make climate-friendly changes.

Tuesday, 30th March 2021, 11:32 am

Climate Action Fife is a Fife-wide partnership project, bringing together individuals, communities, local government and businesses, to tackle the climate emergency.

Scottish households throw away 630,000 tonnes of food waste every year but this could be avoided by managing and storing food better.

To help locals with this, Greener Kirkcaldy is running two online workshops looking at some simple climate-friendly food choices people can make at home. ‘Plating Up For Fife’ will focus on two themes: Reducing food waste on Tuesday, April 13 at 7pm: and; Eating locally and seasonally on Tuesday, April 20 at 7pm.

The workshops will have cooking demos with community chef, Iain McLellan, tips and recipes to reduce food waste and cook with local fruit and vegetables. Participants will be able to collect a free bag of ingredients to cook one of the meals at home.

Iain said: “We can all make a big difference by making small changes to how we shop and manage our food. We want everyone in Fife to take the lead in tackling the climate emergency. With an abundance of delicious produce in Fife, we’d like people to add food from Fife to their shopping list too.”

The event is free but booking is required as places are limited. To book your place, visit or call 01592 858458.

The Climate Action Fife project is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund’s Climate Action Fund and is a partnership project between Greener Kirkcaldy, Fife Council, Fife College and Fife Communities Climate Action Network.
