Food is wasted in NSW because we cook and buy too much.
Share your experience buying, cooking and saving food.
Planning is the most important step when buying food and avoiding food waste. Here is our recipe for success: plan your menus, do a stocktake, check your recipes, write your shopping list, and be a smart shopper.
Planning your meals and writing a shopping list in advance will save you time and money.
Check what you have in the fridge and cupboards and write a detailed list before you set off to the shops.
How we shop impacts on the amount of food we buy and whether we use it or waste it.
Special occasions often prompt us to organise, eat and waste more food than we require.
Grow your own vegetables and eat fresh, local and seasonal produce. You will reduce your environmental footprint.
You can make lots of delicious meals using staples from the cupboard.
