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 $4,000 every year throwing food away. That’s $10 billion worth of food binned by NSW households every year. Throwing food away not only wastes the food itself, but also the energy, water and natural resources used to grow, package, transport and sell 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 guides to help you reduce your food waste and keep more money in your pocket.
