Food waste – save cash and planet

Reduce Food Waste Cost$Green bin in a field

  • Plan your meals. It reduces waste, and makes a for a fun household activity.
  • Buy only what you need.
  • Best before dates are required for manufacturing, but A sniff, a taste, or cutting off a bad part can keep good food from going to waste.
  • Throw out the cook book, not the leftovers!
  • Get spices, flavours and experiment.
  • Blend it. Smoothies, sauces and soups can save all kinds of edgy veggies and fruits.
  • Leftovers are pre-prepped ingredients. Leftovers are already cooked—making you that much closer to a new meal. With flash in the pan and some sauce or spice, last night’s discards become today’s delight.

Food Systems Lab: Closing the loop on food waste in Toronto

//bit.ly/2wXvmjN ]

 

The Food Systems Lab has researched and prepared extensive resources on how to transform the food system to reduce waste and increase food security. Reduce Food Waste at Home, in Production and Manufacturing, in Grocery Stores and food retail, in Agriculture and Distribution, in Restaurants, Hotels and Catering, in Institutions (schools, hospitals, prisons), and through policy.

  • Currently in Canada almost 40% of our food goes to waste. Only 3% gets recycled. The rest ends up in landfill where it produces methane, a green house gas 25 times more potent than CO2. All this while 364,000 households in Toronto experience food insecurity. It’s time to take action on food waste.
