Food Smarts Waste Reduction is a “three-session workshop series that builds cooking and nutrition skills while reducing household food waste.” (Leah’s Pantry). It can be used as a supplement to the Food Smarts Adults curriculum or on its own.
The Washington State SNAP-Ed program has approved the use of Food Smarts Waste Reduction, for adults starting with FFY2024. We ask that all educators using the curriculum attend a training.
Instructor guides support the participant workbooks. Once you are trained, you will have access to the online materials. You can either access the instructor materials in the Food Smarts Adults Instructor Guide or as a separate document. Each local provider will need to obtain your own instructor guide and participant workbooks.
You can get these in several ways:
- Links to download and print Food Smarts materials are provided once you complete the official training.
- You may purchase the Food Smarts materials from Leah’s Pantry.
