The Tesco Community Cookery School program supported by Jamie Oliver is a new initiative that helps to educate thousands of community cooks on how surplus food donations may be used to prevent perfectly good food from going to waste. For years, Tesco has been making efforts to reduce its food waste and regularly donates 300,000 meals of surplus food to thousands of community and charity groups.

Tesco partnered with FareShare to launch its Community Cookery School with Jamie Oliver, which continues to help minimize food waste and create nutritionally balanced meals for sharing. As many community groups find themselves challenged by large quantities of seasonal produce or unexpected ingredients, this initiative helps chefs to make the most of donated food items for a variety of recipes.
