Reducing food waste can help Kiwi families save money.
In New Zealand, the average family throws away three full shopping trolleys of uneaten food into the bin each year which is more than $560 of food going to waste. Waimakariri District Council is one of 59 councils collaborating to deliver Love Food, Hate Waste around New Zealand.
Bread is the most wasted food in New Zealand with 20 million loaves being thrown out each year and that doesn't include the bread we throw out to the birds.
New Zealand's humid climate means that bread doesn't last well in the pantry and should be stored in the fridge or freezer to prevent it from growing mould.
Well know chefs including Anna Langbein, Alyson Gofton and Dr Libby Weaver have donated their favourite recipes for using up odds and ends to the Love Food Hate Waste website.
These days we don’t have to worry about preserving our food, as much of it is done for us already, like dried pasta or tinned tomatoes.
