Dr Miranda Mirosa has helped to establish the University of Otago Food Waste Innovation Research Group which focusses on reducing the amount of food we throw away or turn up our noses at. The Love Food, Hate Waste campaign began almost a year ago, estimating that the average household ditches 563 dollars of food annually, which equates to 79 kilograms of edible food going to landfills, or put another way,  food that could feed twice the population of Dunedin for a year.  Dr Mirosa says as the impacts of climate change, peak oil and food insecurity start to hit home, "food waste" looks set to become one of the major environmental and social justice issues of our time.
