International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste

On 19 December 2019, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) designated 29 September as the International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste (IDAFLW) to raise awareness on the importance of the problem and its possible solutions at all levels, and to promote global efforts and collective action towards meeting SDG target 12.3. 

 

The Estonian Food Bank, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary, decided to organize an annual topical conference “Don’t waste!”, the first of which takes place in cooperation with the Ministry of Social Affairs, the Ministry of the Environment, the Ministry of Rural Affairs, the Embassy of the Netherlands, Rimi Estonia and the European Food Banks Federation.
