Planning will help take the guesswork out of knowing how much to buy and cook.

Not many of us do it. Only 30 per cent of Victorians check what food they already have before hitting the grocery store.

To minimise your waste, you can:
  • Plan your meals
  • Do a stocktake of your pantry and fridge before shopping
  • Check the ingredients in your recipes 
  • Write a shopping list

Love your food

Each year Victorian households throw out 5,000 tonnes of cakes and desserts.
