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.
So, $6.3 million for the federal snivel servants to reduce food waste and $20 million for the rest of we Canadians. Doesn't add up well.
