On October 16, it is World Food Day. On this day, attention is drawn to global food problems and food waste. It also calls for solidarity in the international fight against hunger, malnutrition and poverty.

In an earlier post MondoMio shared shocking facts about food waste. Now it is time for positivity and sharing some tips how to waste less food. What are your tips? Share them, so we all can benefit. But first, get inspired by these fourteen tips:


  1. Old bread – without mould of course – can be frozen. And use it for toast or croutons
  2. If you bought too many fresh vegetables, use them to make a soup that you can then freeze
  3. Freeze leftovers and eat them up to three months (!) later
  4. Keep boiled eggs in the fridge for longer
  5. Eating together saves food and money. And it’s fun
  6. Draw up a weekly menu and use it as a basis for shopping
  7. Organize a weekly ‘leftovers day’ at home, so less goes to waste
  8. Freeze excess grapes and strawberries; you can use them as ice cubes
  9. Set your fridge at 4 degrees Celsius (39 Fahrenheit). Food stays fresh longer and bacteria have less chance
  10. Make ice cubes from coffee leftovers and throw them in a glass of cold milk; delicious iced coffee
  11. Vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers should not be kept in the fridge
  12. Do you need yoghurt or milk today or tomorrow? Then take the carton out of the first line out of the fridge
  13. Do not store winter vegetables such as carrots and celeriac in the fridge; keep them in a cool, dry and dark place
  14. Why don’t you organize an extra dinner party after holidays like Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas and eat the leftovers together
