Take Action on Food Waste

Portion right, cook for your health, and love your leftovers.

Buy only what you need

  • Prepare and stick to a shopping list. Avoid impulse buys.
  • Buy and prepare foods in smaller portions.
  • Choose local, farm fresh products that last longer.
  • If you don’t want leftovers, pay attention to the quantity of food you’re preparing so you make just enough rather than too much.
  • Good food doesn’t have to look good. Remember that a good healthy meal can be a mix of all sorts of leftovers (as long as they were made from healthy ingredients).
