Stop Food Waste Campaign - February 2023

Despite the decreasing amount of food sent to the landfill, wasted food is still one of the largest components of the waste stream.  In addition to harmful greenhouse gases released when food decomposes in a landfill, all the resources that went into producing that food are also wasted, depleting finite resources and further contributing to climate change.

Now in its 6th year, StopWaste’s Stop Food Waste Campaign is a broad scale public awareness campaign designed to address this challenge by helping residents prevent wasted food at home – where the majority of food waste occurs.
