Food Waste Action Week

Food Waste Action Week

In March each year we focus the world’s attention on an important but often unseen climate change issue: food waste.

Highlights from Food Waste Action Week 2022

Supported by 80 organisations, across 12 countries, over 8 million people heard about the food waste issue that week. Nearly 55% of these people took action to reduce the amount of food they bin at home as a result.

Let's be realistic: sometimes we are so busy that thinking about how to save food at home often falls to the bottom of our list. Instead of trying to overhaul your food habits in one day, let's take action together in bite-sized chunks.
