When it comes to food waste, everyone is part of the problem. Therefore everyone has to be part of the solution. An important part of our fight to reduce food waste is to raise awareness of this problem, so that more people can work together to address it.

In this page, you will find our efforts to use media to show more people the extent of the problem of food waste in Singapore:
