Background to the Love Food Hate Waste grants program

The grants are available under the Waste Less, Recycle More Love Food Hate Waste program and will open for applications on July 22, 2015.

Applicants can tap in to a suite of resources developed by the EPA to encourage positive behaviours to reduce food waste, such as meal planning, shopping to a list, correct storage and using up leftovers. The grants:

  •  provide funding of between $5,000-$70,000
  • are open to incorporated not-for-profit, non-government organisations and community groups and local councils
  • include use of EPA-developed resources, communication tools and messaging

Information about successful Round 1 and Round 2 projects can be found on the Environmental Trust website.
