It really is atrocious to waste food especially when there are people in the world going hungry.
In the state of New South Wales in Australia every household spends about $1036 a year on food that gets wasted, totalling $2.5 billion across the whole of NSW. This equates to about 800 tonnes of leftovers that are thrown out and end up in landfills. What a waste!
The reasons for all this food going to waste could be poor meal planning, cluttered fridges, buying and cooking too much, not storing food correctly, buying low quality food that doesn’t taste good, and not utilising leftovers.
Domestic Goddess Alison Drover, a farm to fork cook from www.forkinthefield.com believes in cooking sustainably and using locally grown seasonal and organic produce. In this 4 minute video she shares some ideas about how to use leftovers and reduce food waste (and $) in your kitchen, and makes Panzanella Salad, Gazpacho Soup and Green Smoothies to get your tastebuds watering.
