The average UK family throws away £700 worth of uneaten food a year. That means up to £60 worth of food that we buy every month ends up in the bin.
A typical household in our area throws away 2.7kg of food a week. Almost half of this food is binned before even being prepared or taken out of its packaging.
Wasting food is a habit we can easily break, by buying what we need and using up what we have means less goes to waste.
