Auckland Council funds Love Food Hate Waste ideas
Auckland Council is giving away $40,000 to help Aucklanders reduce their food waste.
Grants from $500 to $5000 are available throughout February to initiatives that help raise awareness of food waste and demonstrate practical solutions to overcome household food waste in Auckland.
This is the fourth grant round for the Love Food Hate Waste project since its start in 2016. Applications are available online from 1 – 28 February 2021.
Previous grants have been awarded to a wide variety of initiatives, like community fridges and pantries, cooking demonstrations, and activations at schools. Film screenings, community get-togethers, and online competitions have also been popular.
The limit for an individual project is higher than in any previous round of the fund, to encourage outside the box thinking and expand the possibilities to larger or longer-term creative initiatives.
