Stop Food Waste Day

April 25

Stop Food Waste Day

Stop Food Waste Day is the largest single day of action in the fight against food waste.

Started in 2017 by Compass Group USA, Stop Food Waste Day is now recognised globally in every corner of the world as we unite to educate and ignite change.

Did you know, one third* of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted globally? Food waste is central to some of the key challenges facing the world today, including hunger and poverty, climate change, health and wellbeing and the sustainability of agriculture and oceans. Wasting food is also a waste of the energy to grow, harvest, process and cook, and food waste in landfill can cause methane emissions, a potent greenhouse gas. *Source: World Food Programme

It’s easy for everyone to get involved with reducing the impact of food waste, not just on Stop Food Waste Day, but day in, day out – both in our personal and professional lives.
