How much food do we waste?
In Ireland there is over one million tonnes of food waste disposed of each year.
Around 1/3 of this comes from households and means that, at home,
80kg of food waste is thrown out per person every year.

Yet 795 million people or one in nine people in the world do not have enough to eat.
98% of the people who do not have enough food live in developing countries.
While some of this food waste cannot be avoided a lot of it could be saved if we managed our food better.

Okay, we are different it’s true.
And I don’t like to do all the things that you do.
But here’s one thing to think through,
You’re a lot like me and I’m a lot like you!
