New Zealand families waste $560 per year on edible food, adding up to a staggering $872 million in total.

love food hate waste logo The LOVE FOOD, HATE WASTE campaign aims to turn this around, by asking people to “do one thing differently” to reduce food waste at home. For instance, you could plan your meals in advance and buy only what you need, or always use leftovers for your lunch. These simple steps will help you save money and help the environment at the same time.

For more information about the campaign visit Love Food Hate Waste on Facebook.

Watch these clips to find out how to make simple tasty meals from leftovers and help save money by using every part of a food item, e.g. cauliflower leaves and stalks, and meat bones.
