Tearfund: Have you seen food waste in the news?


Hi, Peter


Tell your supermarket

Wonky Veg

Have you been following the news about food waste recently? There has been lots happening – from wonky veg being discarded to communities setting up free waste food fridges!

We’re making some great progress but a third of vegetables grown in UK fields are not harvested because of strict supermarket standards. With so many people around the world struggling to feed themselves and their families, this can’t be right.

But taking action on food waste is one of the simplest things we can do. In fact it just takes a minute to email your supermarket and ask them to take action.

So if you think it is time we gave food waste the chop, please sign our petition below:

Take Action

Every blessing,

Kit Powney, Tearfund Action
