Starting college or University? Here’s how to make your food and money go further.

Shopping listAs autumn fast approaches many students will be heading off to college or university for the first time. There’s a lot to get used to, a new course, new friends and often a new home in a new town.

On top of this you may be cooking for yourself for the first time. Whether you’re heading off somewhere new or have just arrived in Lambeth ready to start your course at a London university, the new student guide from Love Food Hate Waste will help you to get started in the kitchen AND help you to save money.

With really useful tips such as getting your portions right to reduce the amount you waste, to a list of store cupboard essentials to ensure you always have a meal available for those late night essay sessions, the guide will help to set you on the right track. There’s even a video to show you how to make a speedy stir fry!

The Love Food Hate Waste website also features some great recipes for using up leftovers and really helpful information on storing food properly to maximise its shelf life.

If you have just moved to Lambeth and are not sure what you can recycle, you can find all the information you need on our website. We collect paper and cardboard, glass bottles and jars, tins and cans, plastic bottles, pot, tubs and trays, and food and drink cartons from your house or estate recycling bin.

Our website also features lots of general information on schemes and ideas that will help you to reduce waste and save money.

Also, don’t forget websites like Freecycle that are great for picking up free sofas, desks and books that will help to stretch your budget further and reduce waste.

Good luck!
