Plan to Save: Food Waste Reduction
On average, households throw away about $1,500 worth of food per year. Most of this food waste is edible, which is food that could have been eaten but was thrown away in the garbage or Green Bin.
Take the Plan to Save Challenge this fall to waste less food and save more money!
Throughout the challenge, you will follow four local champions: Phil Dewar, Councillor Lisa Post, Tina Thorpe, and Sara Wicks who will share their progress by posting videos on social media. Join them in following the weekly challenges that will help you plan healthy meals, shop savvy and store food wisely.
The first 100 participants will be entered in a draw to win 1 of 3 $100 gift cards to a local restaurant of choice, and will receive a kit with resources including a produce storage guide, infographics, tip sheets, and more!
The challenge will begin on September 23rd with your first activity of the week. You will also hear from your Champions on a weekly basis so stay tuned on Join in Dufferin and follow Dufferin Waste on social media! @dufferinwaste #plantosave #reducefoodwaste
