MILDURA households could save thousands of dollars every year by changing their attitudes towards food.

It’s estimated the average Victorian household throws away $2200 worth of food each year – or $42 each week.

Slow Food Mildura Youth Network and Loddon Mallee Waste and Resource Recovery Group will next week host a screening of the film Just Eat It, which follows a pair of film-makers as they explore the issue of food waste from farm, retail and their own fridge.
