Love Food Hate Waste

lfhw-logoFood waste is a major issue. In the UK we throw away 7 million tonnes of food and drink from our homes a year, over half of which could have been eaten.

Wasting this food costs an average households £470 a year, rising to £700 for a family with children, the equivalent of around £60 a month! And it’s bad for the environment too.

There are two main reasons why we throw away good food: we cook or prepare too much or we don’t use it in time.

The foods we waste the most are fresh vegetables and salad, drink, fresh fruit, and bakery items such as bread and cakes.
