Put leftovers to good use to reduce waste

Love Food, Hate Waste New Zealand is hosting a Love Your Leftovers lunch on Friday, November 25 and is encouraging all to get involved.

The group is calling for people to bring leftovers to work for their lunch on Friday, to promote awareness around food waste in New Zealand.


“When we throw away food, especially cooked food, we are wasting all of the time, money and resources that went into growing, transporting, purchasing, storing and preparing it,” the group says.


“Eating leftovers for lunch is a great way to ensure they don’t go to waste.”
