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 the problem, at the same time educating through engaging with society at all levels and sharing practical, creative and impactful ways we can all change our behaviour to minimise food waste.
