Love Food Hate Waste is targeting household food waste. The Wellington region has a wide range of food champions, community groups and organisations working on different aspects of the food waste problem, from restaurants to supermarkets to growers. Our strategy for Wellington is to work with a wide range of these groups and organisations to help deliver the Love Food Hate Waste message.
