Food Waste

Around a billion people don't have enough food to eat, yet we throw away around a third of all the food produced.

 

This resource pack by Young People's Trust for the Environment explores questions such as 'why do we waste so much food?', 'what are the impacts of food waste?' and 'what can we all do to help reduce food waste?'.
