Sustain Ontario, the Alliance for Healthy Food and Farming, has launched a household food waste tool kit, Reducing Household Food Waste: A Municipal Regional Toolkit.
This resource offers suggestions for reducing household food waste for municipal and regional government, food policy councils, community groups and non-profit organizations like Second Harvest, as well as information about existing initiatives.
According to Sustain Ontario, studies show that the greatest value of food waste occurs at the household level, and this toolkit hopes to help change behaviour among Ontario consumers as well as offer economic benefits for local and regional governments to reduce food waste footprints.
