In a vast world of 7.7 billion where all you hear about are our differences, there are some important things that connect us, and one of these is food. Food connects us all. We all need it, depend on it, survive because of it and derive happiness from it (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations). 

Unfortunately, according to Second Harvest (The Avoidable Crisis of Food Waste the Roadmap, 2018), world hunger is on the rise while an estimated ⅓ of all food produced globally is lost or goes to waste. In Canada alone, 58% (35.5 million metric tonnes) of all the food produced is lost or wasted every year. It is time to rethink our individual attitudes and behaviours related to food. 

Just Eat It! Toronto, aims to change the food waste behaviours of Toronto residents by building awareness, building skills and knowledge, and getting more residents to take action on food waste. The Toronto challenge is offered in partnership with Drawdown TorontoEcoCaledon, WastelessFood and Canadian Climate Challenge, and has been modelled after a similar campaign run in Dufferin County, entitled “Plan to Save”.

"When we think of the causes of global warming, fossil fuel use most often comes to mind. Less conspicuous are the consequences of our breakfast, lunch and dinner.” ~ Drawdown, 2017
