London, ON. CTV News London recently interviewed Western Geography and HEALab PhD Candidate Paul van der Werf in a feature (http://bit.ly/2rD7AGN) about the London Household Food Waste Survey he is leading with Dr Jason Gilliland and the City of London. The survey (www.foodwaste.ca) asks households to self-report on the types and quantities of food they waste; their food wasting intentions and why food becomes waste, in their household. This survey complements ongoing research that measures actual food wasting behaviours through the collection and measurement of household food waste samples.
