17 Fantastic Food Blogger Recipes to Help Reduce Food Waste!
The No Waste Food Challenge was set up in 2012 in a bid to encourage our fellow foodies to help prevent food waste both by doing it ourselves and encouraging others. This challenge asks us to share our recipes and tips on how we’ve used up an ingredient which might otherwise have ended up in a landfill site.
You can read more about it and find the current month’s linky on the official No Waste Food Challenge page. All entries get stumbled, pinned, G+’d, tweeted and included in the monthly round up!
