Why Food Waste Action Week Is Important

Words by Abi Scaife

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. 

We visited The Felix Project with Kitche to learn how more people can get involved in Food Waste Action Week.
