Food Waste Survey for Bucks!

There has never been a more appropriate time than now, to investigate how we compare in Bucks against national food waste statistics!

Buckinghamshire Council are currently amidst a couple of interesting campaigns to support residents to reduce their food waste. These are:

  1. Bucks Food Waste Survey residents online survey of household behaviors regarding food waste.
  2. ‘Kitche’ App– to help identify where we may make better use of our food purchases to insure items aren’t wasted and to try a recipe featured in their catalogue.
  3. Bin Audit– Are we using the food caddy service or are resident still throwing away food waste that could be prevented, composted or place in a food caddy? The Waste Management will be surveying bins across the county to identify where the need lies.

The survey closes on the 29th May and aims to collect:

  • Knowledge and behaviour around ‘use by’ and ‘best before’ dates
  • Lifestyle changes that challenge good food routines
  • Food waste reduction types
  • Food waste apps
  • Disposing of food waste

Entries will be put into a prize draw to win £250!
