Food Waste Stories

There IS such a thing as a free lunch!

Wednesday 22nd January 2014

In the UK, we spend £6.5 billion on buying ready-made sandwiches every year - but at the same time we're wasting over £6 billion worth of good food, that we could have used to make our own lunch.

Don't waste money on buying lunch that you could have made from ingredients you already have! Raid your fridge, feezer and cupboards and get creative.

Here's a recipe from LFHW to use up leftover chicken and crème fraiche - perfect for filling your homemade sandwich!

Creamy herb chicken


125g chicken strips

2 tablespoons crème fraiche

2 tablespoons chopped tarragon, mint or basil


black pepper


1. Mix leftover chicken strips with a few tablespoons of mayonnaise mixed with the crème fraiche.

2. Flavour with herbs such as tarragon, mint or basil and season with salt and pepper.

3. Use it to fill a crusty roll or sandwich for a tasty leftover lunch!
