Attached below is a letter from the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs, Rebecca Pow MP. The letter outlines The UK’s first ever Food Waste Action Week, which is taking place from Monday 1 to Sunday 7 March 2021.
Food waste is one of the biggest contributors to climate change and 70% of UK food waste occurs in our homes. The week will explore the practical ways in which we can drive down the amount of food we waste and look at why through every avenue – whether you’re a citizen, business or organisation – wasting food makes no sense.
