Equitable Social and Gender Environment for Reducing Consumer Food Waste

Social and community initiatives provide forums and mechanisms to reduce food waste in local areas. Such initiatives provide advice on food shopping and can redistribute or make better use of food destined for landfill. Some examples include food hubs or community fridges, and provide a place where people can bring their surplus food. The food is then made available to people in need.
