A new national program announced this week looks to help households to save money while also reducing food waste in Canada. According to the National Zero Waste Council nearly half of the food waste in Canada can be attributed to households, and 60% of that food waste is preventable, and it costs those households an average of $1100 a year.
There are some big issues when it comes to household food waste, one of those is how to store food properly. There have been numerous ideas of how to store your food in the fridge, everyone knows about the crisper drawers; but do you know they often have humidity settings? Or how to change them?
That sort of tip is what you can expect to find, along with what should be stored in which part of the fridge, or in the freezer, or on the counter and in the cupboard.
You’ll also find helpful information about how to reduce waste by not buying more than your need, how best before dates work, and how to preserve your food to help keep it from going bad. Portions and Meal Planning tips are also available in the new resource.
All of that can be found in the Love Food Hate Waste campaign website https://lovefoodhatewaste.ca/
Do your household a favour and help save money while you also reduce food waste in Canada.
