    The Food Donation Toolkit

    No business likes wasting food. Not only is throwing out food a waste of resources, it’s also a waste of money.

    Unfortunately Australia-wide, businesses create over 1.3 million tonnes of food waste each year. No matter what kind of food business you’re in, there’s plenty that you can do to address the problem. With the growth of food rescue programs by OzHarvest, Foodbank and SecondBite, companies of all sizes can now donate their high quality surplus food to people who are doing it tough.

    This ‘Food Donation Tool Kit’ is a how-to guide to food donation for business. It is full of tips and solutions that will help you reduce the amount of food that your business wastes. At the same time, it will also help you to support local charities. A Do Something! partnership initiative with the NSW EPA, the toolkit gives businesses all the basic information that they need. Best of all it’s free! You can download the toolkit as a PDF simply by clicking here. You can also browse an interactive copy by clicking on the image below.
