Love Food Hate Waste is an ACT Government program to help reduce food waste at home with inspiring ideas, recipes, facts and resources.
The program is about trying to ensure that edible food is not thrown away. The National Food Waste Strategy provides a framework to support collective action towards halving Australia’s food waste by 2030. Love Food Hate Waste is a part of the ACT’s response to help achieve that goal. See about for more information.
With 1/3 of all edible food produced globally lost or wasted it is a big problem – for our environment and for our wallets.
Australian households may waste up to $3,800 every year by throwing away food that could have been eaten, that may be up to $73 a week.
Uneaten food wastes many resources – land, water, transport, refrigeration and packaging.
Food waste also produces methane in landfill – a powerful greenhouse gas.
In Australia, 74% of the food waste in landfill has come from households.
To help you love your food and reduce your waste, the Canberra Environment Centre are running some online workshops. To sign up, follow the links below.
