Every year, NSW households throw away more than 800,000 tonnes of edible food. This equates to $10 billion – on average, $3,800 per household, meaning your household wastes $73 of food every week. Shop right, waste less.
Edible food is usually wasted because we buy too much, cook too much, or store food incorrectly. There are many simple changes that you can make to save time, money, and cut food waste. For more tips, tools and recipes visit the NSW Government's Love Food, Hate Waste website.
To learn more about minimising food waste, attend one of our Eat Well and Waste Less workshops. Go to the Liveable Parramatta Facebook page to get tickets.
