London project to target food waste prevention and recycling alongside healthy eating
London households throw away an estimated 900,000 tonnes of food each year, of which 540,000 tonnes could have been eaten. Not only is this environmentally damaging but it’s a huge waste of money for consumers, local authorities and businesses.
