Buy locally grown food and reduce food miles.

Home grown food has zero food miles and no plastic packaging. If you need more space than you have at home, you could take on an allotment. The Bishops Stortford Council manages over 480 allotment plots on 10 sites. Plots are available at many of the sites.

Wasting food wastes energy. Check out the Love Food Hate Waste website for tips about keeping food and recipes for using up leftovers.

You could also give to the Bishop’s Stortford foodbank, either your time or your food.
