We Acknowledge That 30% Of Food Waste in Australia Happens In The Home Kitchen

We Are Addressing a New Type of Social Responsibility Around Food Waste

  • teaching people how to utilise their leftovers

  • educating people on how to reduce their food waste

Our Workshops


Our

Beginning

Started in January 2016, Leftover Lovers was initially a 'food waste' project between friends...

...Running 'Munchie Mondays', a public event that ran in public parks. The events attracted 35-40 people, and were an inspiration to feed and discuss food waste further and expand the mission to fight food waste. It was from these conversations with the public, food waste organisations and local businesses that 'Leftover Lovers' was conceived.
