CBC London interviews HEAL’s Paul van der Werf on Household Food Waste

The Heal’s Paul van der Werf was interviewed on CBC London’s special Sounds of the Season show on 1 December 2017. A key purpose of the show is to help raise funds for the London Food Bank. Paul chatted about his ongoing London research which shows that households throw out $600/year of avoidable food, from just their household activities. This is worth an estimated $75 million/year in London. He challenged listeners to reduce their food waste by 50% and to donate 10% of their savings to organizations that help the food insecure. A summary of his comments are included in this CBC London print article http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/london/london-food-waste-research-money-1.4425561
