Food waste Action Week 2023

10 March 2023

Monday 6 - Sunday 12  March

The Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) has announced its third campaign week, concentrating on food waste.

We're working to halve food waste by 2030

4.5 million tonnes of edible food is thrown away each year by UK households. Shockingly, 25% of this wasted food is due to cooking, preparing or serving too much - this costs UK households £3.5 billion each year. 

That is why Love Food Hate Waste is dedicating a whole week of action to shining a light on how simple behaviours to reduce food waste can save time and money. This will ultimately reduce the impact of food waste on climate change.
