Food Waste


The Toronto Food Policy Council (TFPC) has been involved in several food waste reduction initiatives over the years.

These include:

  • Serving on the Steering Committee of the Ministry of Environment and Energy’s Wet Waste Strategic Planning process.
  • Participating in several community composting projects, such as Toronto Urban Nutrient Recovery Committee in the Broadview-Gerrard neighbourhood, and the Greenest City worm project in Kensington Market neighbourhood.
  • Reporting to the Board of Health on a one-tonne per day pilot composting project, adopted by Works and Environment Department in 1997.
  • Participating in the Metro Wet Waste sub-committee, resulting in six composting projects.

The TFPC is currently producing a report on food waste reduction for the City’s long-term solid waste management strategy.
