What can London Boroughs do? Provide comprehensive kitchen food waste collection services for London’s households, and promote WRAP’s Love Food, Hate Waste campaign (www.lovefoodhatewaste.com) and the Feeding the 5,000 Pledge to help residents reduce food waste.
Also engage with the Food Waste Pyramid for London programme, promoting this to local businesses. To find out more, see the website: www.feeding5k.org
