View Waste Less Food video:


Why are we wasting good food?

 
At a household level:
  • Australians discard up to 20% of the food they purchase
  • This equates to 1 out of every 5 bags of groceries they buy
  • Up to 40% of the average household garbage bin is food
  • For the average Australian household, > $1,000 of food is thrown away each year
What could this be spent on:
  • Enough to feed the average household for over a month
  • Paying off six months of your electricity bill

The following infographic provides a snapshot of some the reasons why.
