Make food matter!

Did you know we can protect our planet by saving food?

At least one-third of all edible food produced across the world is never eaten – enough food to feed 2 billion people. That’s just over a quarter of the world’s population!

To truly understand why edible food gets chucked away, our Love Food Hate Waste team would like you and your family to become investigators. 

Monitor how much food you and your family throws away at home in one week, learn how to save food and become a food saver superhero!

To access the activity materials, please visit our Love Food Hate Waste - Make Food Matter page.
