Reducing Food Wastage
Food is a labour of love. And it is shown by the farmers who work tirelessly, the hawkers who cook from dawn to dusk, our loved ones who thoughtfully prepare our meals, and the organisations who try to ensure everyone has food to eat.
However, food isn’t always appreciated and valued. In 2020, Singapore wasted a shocking 665,000 tonnes of food! That’s the same as 1.5 bowls of rice per person, per day or around 46,000 double decker buses.
Let’s be more mindful of food wastage by buying and ordering only what we can finish.
Learn and practise the tips in this Handy guide to reduce food wastage. This will also help Singapore move towards a Zero Waste Nation today!
Food is a beautiful way for us to express and receive love, especially when it's hard to find the right words.
This short film is a reminder that food is love, and we should not waste it.
