Culinary Trivia Night for OzHarvest

Eat Canberra

Food, food, glorious food. We all love it and we all indulge in it. Living in a country like Australia means that we are fortunate to have access to an abundance of food. But did you know:

  • Approximately 8 to 10 billion dollars of food is wasted each year in commercial and residential waste. That’s around four million tonnes of food that ends up as landfill.
  • Roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year — approximately 1.3 billion tonnes — gets lost or wasted.
  • Australians throw out one out of every five shopping bags, which equates to every Australian household throwing out $1,036 worth of groceries each year.
  • Australia produces enough food to feed approx. 60 million people, yet two million people still rely on food relief every year
  • Nearly one million Aussie kids go without breakfast or bed without dinner
