Stream 1 Household education


Grants of up to $20,000 were  available for organisations to deliver our Food Smart program. Food Smart is an education program for households that involves a six-step action plan with email reminders, information, tips and resources like bag clips. 

The program was piloted in April 2017 with 91 per cent of people stating that it helped them understand how to reduce food waste and 82 per cent stating that it made avoiding food waste easier. 

These grants are currently closed. A future round is proposed for 2020.

Grants of up to $60,000 for two-year projects were available for organisations to deliver our Your Business is Food program. Your Business is Food is an education program for cafés and restaurants.

It provides businesses with information and support to conduct a food waste audit, as well as action plans and advice on reducing food waste at every stage of the process, including food preparation, storage and plating. Businesses involved in the program reduced food waste by an average of 21 per cent. 

These grants are currently closed. A future round is proposed for 2020.
