A lot of food is wasted in Metro Vancouver, and over 50% of this waste is avoidable.

Wasting food means that all the resources used to produce that food is also wasted (e.g. water, land, and fuel).

This problem isn't just in restaurants and grocery stores. Nearly half (47%) of all food waste occurs in our homes. This wasted food costs a typical Metro Vancouver household about $700 per year. The good news is that this problem is easy to solve if we all make some simple changes.
