Since 2007, thousands of you have helped spread the LFHW message far and wide to help make food waste a thing of the past. Since then, together we’ve saved more than 8 million tonnes of food from the bin, an amazing achievement that we’re really proud of; in fact, it’s been so good you’ve inspired us to achieve even more.


We need your help. In the UK in 2015 alone, £15 billion of edible food was thrown away from our homes. In total 7.1 million tonnes of food was thrown away, which if prevented, would have the environmental benefit of taking one in four cars off the road.


The good news is that it’s easy to do your bit and make a real difference to the planet and your pocket too. By making a few small changes, like keeping your fridge at the right temperature and using up those delicious leftovers, together we can cut food waste further.


That’s right. 2017 is our year of action. It’s time to Unite in the Food Waste Fight. To find out what kind of foodie you are and how you can help us keep even more food out of the bin we’ve developed a five-question quiz to help you choose your food saving weapon of choice.


Go on, have a go! With your help, we can turn the tide on food waste in the UK.
