At 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 12, the Riverside County Department of Waste Resources will host a free virtual food waste and food rescue class that can be accessed on any computer, tablet, or smartphone. This hour-long virtual class is a safe, socially-distanced way to learn methods to get the most out of the food purchased and create lasting habits that will keep food on your plate and out of the trash can.
The food waste and food rescue class covers the food cycle from start to finish by offering tips for purchasing at the grocery store, resources to manage food once you get home, and even recipes for using items that are near their expiration date. The virtual class is free and will end by 10 a.m. Attendees do not have to register for the class. Just go to the class link: http://www.rcwaste.org/classes select the Food Rescue class tab and click on the Webex hyperlink for the live class on Saturday.
These programs are offered to teach residents about the importance of food waste prevention and how it preserves valuable space in county landfills.
