The federal government is going to spend $6.3 million to reduce its own food waste, Agriculture Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau announced recently.

It’s part of a $20-million fund to find and develop innovative food waste reduction strategies and the Food Waste Challenge is, in turn, part of the recently announced national Food Policy.

Bibeau said more than 11 million tonnes of food worth nearly $50 billion is wasted every year.
