Love Food Hate Waste

Whatever kind of food you love, sometimes it can be hard to eat it all. When plans change or daily life gets in the way, we all end up throwing away food for one reason or another. But shockingly, food makes up around a quarter of the rubbish we throw away in Hampshire, and most of this could have been eaten!
 


Waste Less, Save More

This Autumn, Fareham Borough Council are running the Great Food Rescue in partnership with Sainsbury's, and you can get involved!Waste Less, Save More logo

Enter our childrens competition

We want children up to age 11 to design a logo for the side of a take-out bag to encourage people to take home their left overs! The winning logo will be printed on bags that will be distributed to local restaurants. Full details are available.

Think you don't throw food away?

Keep a simple diary for a week PDF (1 MB), and jot down any food that doesn't get eaten. Return it to us and we will send you a Food Saver pack. Download it, or contact us for a paper copy.

Fortunately there are lots of ways to make the most of the food we buy, and save ourselves money at the same time.
