We fight food waste!

Our mission at Stop Food Waste Day is to ignite change regarding the global food waste issue. We do this by drawing attention to food waste problems, at the same time educating through engaging with society at all levels by sharing practical, creative, and impactful ways we can all change our behaviour to reduce food waste in the world.
