Learn how to cut food waste and save money!

Did you know that one in five shopping bags of food ends up in the bin? What a waste!

The FREE Food Smart program is helping families cut food waste to save money and the environment.

The average family wastes almost $965 per person, every year throwing food away. That’s $10 billion worth of food binned by NSW households every year. When we waste food, we’re also wasting all the natural resources, like water and energy, that went into growing, packaging, transporting, selling and preparing it.

The good news is that by making a few small simple changes at home, you can save money and reduce the amount of food you throw out.

Food Smart is a free program helping local families reduce their food waste – saving time, money and valuable natural resources.

It includes easy, step-by-step emails to help you reduce food waste and keep more money in your pocket.
