Herefordshire Food Charter. Healthy food for people, place and planet

Love Food Hate Waste1choose’s annual campaign Food Waste Action Week is back.

This year - it's ‘choose what you’ll use’ by buying your fruit and vegetables loose instead of packaged. Research from Love Food Hate Waste has shown that we could reduce food waste by 60,000 tonnes just by buying loose fruit and veg!

And we could go one better here in Herefordshire - let's buy it unpackaged and from local river-friendly farms!

With food waste costing £1,000 for an average household of four every year, Food Waste Action Week aims to help shoppers save money and waste less by shopping for loose produce.

Sometimes we are in the mood for a huge potato, and sometimes we just need one carrot for our spag bol. Why let the rest go to waste? Choose loose and you don’t have to.

Visit the Love Food Hate Waste website to get tips on how to buy, prep and store food so it doesn’t go to waste.
