Youth Delegates to Zagare Annual Meeting – Important Information: To All Youth Delegates at Zagare Annual Meeting…

We are close to the meeting and the Youth Coordination Team (YCT) would ask you to do some “homework” prior to the meeting.

We are going to have a tool-box in the end of this project with different tools, that can help us in our fight against food waste. One of those tools is a recipe book with dishes made out of leftovers. We kindly ask you to send three recipes containing the three most common leftovers: bread, potatoes and meat. That means that we are ending up with 28 recipes containing bread, 28 potatoes and 28 meat for inspiration to use your leftovers in a smart and European way. Below is a link to a model in which we ask you to insert your recipes. The document contains furthermore an example on how we would like the recipes to look.

One other thing that we would ask you to send is ideas for fighting food waste. These will end up in a book full of ideas for inspiration in all of the municipalities. Below is a link to a document with an example and a model on how we would like you send the ideas of your municipality.

We kindly ask you to return both the recipes and the ideas for fighting food waste as soon as possible by email: Nicolai Røge     Email Nicolai Røge

Here is the Information: The fighting food waste book1 and Instruction for recipes
