Presented by City of Cockburn

Date: 14 to 22 August 2021 Location: OTTEY Community Centre, Coolbellup Hub, various schools

Did you know: one third of all food produced is lost or wasted (around 1.3 billion tonnes of food), costing the global economy nearly $940 billion each year? If food waste was a country, it would be the third largest emitter of greenhouse gases after the USA and China!

The City of Cockburn’s Fight Food Waste Forever program aims to educate the community about avoiding, reusing and recycling food waste, so it does not end up in landfill where it emits harmful greenhouse gases.

Through interactive education sessions, workshops and tours, this program aims to provide necessary information and tools for you to take positive action to reduce food waste and recover this resource. Inspire your creativity and innovation to solve the food waste problem in your home, school, business and in your broader community.
