Tips on how to reduce household food waste will be the focus of library sessions in August and September.

Budget-friendly meal-planning sessions are scheduled for:

• Beenleigh Library: 1pm to 2.30pm on Saturday, August 14

• Jimboomba Library: 10.30am to noon on Saturday, September 18

• Marsden Library: 1.30pm to 3pm on Saturday, September 18

Valerie Pearson, from Green Living Australia at Underwood, will provide advice on organising healthy meals, including how to shop better, store food and use everything that has been purchased.

Reducing food wastage not only helps save money, it can also lead to a reduction in the amount of meat consumed which can be good for economic and health reasons, she said.

The sessions do not include cooking demonstrations but will cover meal planning, shopping lists, using leftovers and the best ways to package and store meals.

Everyone attending the sessions will develop a meal plan and create their own shopping list.
