Food waste challenge


Take the food waste challenge

It is estimated that ACT households could save up to $70 per week by avoiding food waste.

Take the Food Waste Challenge for a step by step recipe to reducing food waste in your household, saving you money and cutting carbon emissions. The three-week Challenge will focus on simple actions that ensure the food you buy and prepare gets eaten.

Earn a $30 IKEA voucher*

The first 1000 ACT residents that sign up and complete the challenge, including the final survey, will be eligible for a $30 IKEA voucher*.

*To be eligible for a $30 IKEA voucher, you will need to be one of the first 1000 ACT residents to complete the final survey. The survey will only be sent to those who engage with the Food Waste Challenge emails. Transport Canberra and City Services employees and their families are not eligible to receive the $30 IKEA voucher.

Food is too valuable to be wasted so transform your household from food wasters to food tasters in just three weeks!
