Take Action

Save food and beat the bin!

Get started on your food-saving journey

We all know how busy life can be, so choose one simple food hack to try today – whether that’s planning more meals so you know what you need in your weekly shop, measuring your rice or pasta before cooking, popping leftovers in the fridge or freezer for another meal, or checking your fridge is set to a cool enough temperature.

It doesn’t have to be anything complicated, like going fully ‘zero waste’ at the drop of a hat, making meals from fruit and veg peelings, or growing your own veg (although if you’re into it, that’s brilliant!) One small change really does make a huge difference if enough of us take that action.

Keep doing your chosen action every week until it becomes second nature and part of your weekly food routine. Then try something else. In a few weeks, you’ll be surprised at how much food you’re saving from the bin and how many more $s you have in your pocket.
