Stop Food Waste Day is an International Day of Action that takes place in April every year. The day aims to raise awareness about the issue of food waste and encourage people to take action to reduce the amount of food that is wasted around the world.
Food waste is a major global issue, with an estimated one-third of all food produced for human consumption being lost or wasted every year. This equates to approximately 1.3 billion tonnes of food, which could feed the world’s hungry four times over. Food waste also has significant environmental and economic impacts, including the generation of greenhouse gas emissions, water wastage, and increased food prices.
The aim of Stop Food Waste Day is to raise awareness about the issue of food waste and encourage people to take action to reduce it. There are many simple steps that individuals can take to reduce food waste, such as planning meals in advance, buying only what is needed, and storing food correctly to extend its shelf life. Businesses and organizations can also take action to reduce food waste by implementing waste reduction strategies, such as composting, donating surplus food to those in need, and working with suppliers to reduce overproduction.
From April 17-28th, SISTERS EU Project organises a D&C campaign with many actions and exciting collaborations in order to raise awareness of food loss and waste at the consumption stage of the #FoodValueChain!
