What you can do

This short film follows three Aussies as they ask questions about their food origins and reconnect with the journey from paddock to plate.

Try to avoid overbuying food. Remember refrigerated foods and fresh fruit and vegetables have a limited shelf life.

By planning a weekly menu, including supplies for morning teas and lunch boxes you can buy what you need and reduce food waste.

You can make your own stock by using leftover beef and lamb, bones and vegetables.

Fresh herbs are an easy way to make your meals more interesting and add more flavour.

A lot of packaging is unnecessary and effort should be taken to avoid buying overly packaged foods.

Get a compost bin or worm farm for your fresh food kitchen waste and use this to fertilise your garden.
