Celebrate Without Wasting Food
Many of us celebrate the holidays with festive treats and delicious meals – but not all this food gets eaten. Save food (and money) this holiday season by using up all your groceries, from planning to serving to using up leftovers.
Reduce Your Holiday “Waste” Line
Tis the season for planning and preparing indulgent treats – from trays of cookies to appies at the holiday party to traditional family meals. But not all of this food gets eaten. One third of all food produced globally is wasted and 47% of the value of food wasted in Canada happens in our homes. 63% of the food Canadians throw away could have been eaten.
Wasting food uses up valuable resources like land, water, and energy.
What’s more, wasted food costs an average Canadian household more than $1,100 a year.
