Be part of The Food Fix network and start saving food while saving money on your grocery bills!
We all love food. But sometimes life gets in the way and food ends up in the bin... a lot of food, as it turns out!
The average NSW household throws over $1000 worth of food in the bin each year. That's like throwing out 1 in every 5 bags of food you buy!
Food is actually the biggest single thing we throw away in the inner west, making up to 40% of our red garbage bins. Audits show that 65% of food waste is avoidable.
Globally, by weight, around a third of all food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted.
Food scraps in your red garbage bin are sent to landfill. Once in landfill, food scraps undergo anaerobic decomposition (because of the lack of oxygen) and generate methane, a harmful and potent greenhouse gas.
Wasting food also wastes the water, fuel and resources it took to grow the food and get the food from the paddock to your plate.
Let’s fix it!
The Food Fix will come to your group, club, café or local park and run a fun and interactive session on food waste. We will tailor the session to fit within your network meeting time and meet your members’ needs.
Through hands on activities and practical demonstrations, your members will have fun exploring solutions that will cut their food waste at home, saving time and money.
