Who doesn’t love food? But with more than $2.5 billion worth of edible food thrown out by NSW householders each year, there is a lot that we can do to love our food even more, and waste less. The Love Food Hate Waste program is an exciting initiative of local councils in partnership with the North East Waste Forum (NEWF).

‘Around one third of the food we buy will end up the bin,’ said Linda Tohver, education coordinator for the North East Waste Forum.

‘The Love Food Hate Waste program aims to raise awareness about the impact of food waste in NSW and reduce how much “good” food we waste.’

The program’s bright marquee and performers have been popping up in food markets and shopping centres over the last few weeks and will be at Mullumbimby Farmers Markets tomorrow.

The team will how easy it is to prevent food wastage and save up to $1,000 a year through planning and buying your food, preparing, cooking and storing food correctly.

Performer Cowgirl Chef entertains audiences with a whip-cracking, egg-beating, vegetable-juggling cooking show, leaving a lasting, consciousness-raising impression! French chef Pierre brings his love for food and good kitchen practices to tantalise the taste buds and awaken the senses.

For more details of where the program is appearing on the north coast, and to find out more about the Love Food Hate Waste Program, go to www.northeastwasteforum.org.au.
