Stop Food Waste

Stop Food Waste Challenge


The Stop Food Waste Challenge is a six-week long programme aimed at educating households on methods to help them reduce their food waste and in the process, save money. It is estimated that the average household throws out between €700 and €1000 worth of food per year. With this in mind, members from the Environment Section of Meath County Council have created a Stop Food Waste Challenge Team.

The team commenced one of these challenges in November with a number of council staff, and met four times over six weeks. During that time participants were provided with information on such issues as making shopping lists, clever shopping, correct storage, and reuse of leftover foods

Overall, the challenge demonstrated to the participants the quantities of food that their households wasted each week, and also how much money had been spent on that wasted food. Meath County Council hopes to run the challenge with a community group in 2015. For more information on how your community group can get involved, contact the Environment Section on 046 – 909 7200.
