Love Food Hate Wate
UK households throw away an estimated third of all the food they buy. Love Food Hate Waste helps individuals make changes to reduce the amount of wasted food – there’s tips for rescuing wilting produce, recipes for leftovers, and information on getting portion sizes spot on

Tackling wasted food and food poverty while encouraging volunteering, FoodCycle supports communities to collect surplus food and cook meals which are served to those in need.

The Waste and Resources Action Programme assists different groups – from local authorities to the retail supply chain – in working toward a world without waste.

This is Rubbish
While other organisations concentrate mainly on the food thrown out by supermarkets or in the home, This Is Rubbish concentrate on the food wasted before it reaches consumers. Launched in 2009 at a mass public food waste feast, TiR have been touring Wales this summer with a popup food waste café.

Working to relieve food poverty while also reducing food waste, FareShare provides food for those in need sourced from surplus products from the food and drink industry. In 2010/11, their work helped make 8.6 million meals.

Food Not Bombs
A global movement that protests against war and poverty by recovering food that would have been discarded and sharing it. Begun in the United States, there are now over 1000 local groups, from Asia to the Middle East.

    What an informative and interesting website. I, too, am incredibly passionate about reducing food waste, so much so that since having my own children, I have now made it my mission to help share my food waste reduction tips through product development, and now through my site Through sharing my easy green living tips, like you, I hope to encourage busy families (particularly mums) to get more value out of their food and reduce unnecessary food waste. I would welcome a guest post from yourselves to feature on my sites, if this is of interest to you, please do drop me a line. Regards, Lyndsey
