V EÚ sa ročne vyhodí až 88 miliónov ton jedla, čo predstavuje 173 kilogramov na osobu. Najviac jedla však vyhadzujú koneční spotrebitelia, a to až 53 percent.

Our lives depend on food and we need to ensure that we use it responsibly. Food waste is a significant concern, data in the EU shows that around 88 million tonnes of food waste are generated in a year and the cost associated is of 143 billion euros (FUSIONS, 2016). Globally, it is reported that 1/3 of the food produced for human consumption ends up as waste (FAO, 2011). According to the report ”Estimates of European food waste levels” of FUSIONS for the European Commission, the main place where food waste occurs is the household. Therefore, this project aims to raise awareness among youth participants about the problem of food waste and the need to promote sustainable consumption, starting from their daily environment which is at home.
