Fight Food Waste

With a national target to halve food waste by 2030, OzHarvest is determined to fight food waste by reconnecting Australians to the value of food and make wasting food a thing of the past.

The Problem

Food waste feeds climate change. Food waste is often overlooked in the climate change debate, but is responsible for 8-10% of global greenhouse gases. That’s more than all the emissions from the plastic we produce (3.8%), the aviation section (1.9%) and from extracting oil (3.8%). Food waste is a major contributor to climate change, but we can all take action, starting in the kitchen.
