Global Food Waste Day March 12
Join The Natural Step Israel in marking March 12th as the Global Food Waste Day. The date will be marked annually to raise awareness to the global problem as well as to the solutions, in collaboration with organizations and individuals, in Israel and worldwide
The purpose of FWD is to draw attention to the global plague of food waste and encourage adoption of solutions throughout the production and consumption chain: from the fields, through the factories, retailers, hotels, restaurants, schools, universities and of course, at home.
Groups, individuals and organizations are welcome to join us and to use the free branding and add content and activities that suit their targets and capacity: talks, lectures, screenings, study tours etc. Together, we will remind the true value of food, get to know easy solutions to reduce and avoid wasting it and call for a relevant and meaningful policy.
