Food Secure Future - Food Waste
Play • 23 min

The Food Secure Future Podcast brings together researchers and experts from the field to discuss how to feed the future in a way that is healthy, sustainable, and nutritious. Approximately 40% of food waste in Canada happens at the household level. According to the Guelph Food Waste Research Project, that amounts to around $18 per household per week, or almost $1000 per year! Taking small steps to change our day-to-day habits, like making a list before grocery shopping or learning how to store perishable foods so they will last longer, can help save money, improve nutrition, and reduce environmental stress.
