Food Know How

About Food Know How

Food Know How guides you on better food planning, shopping and storing. This will help:

  • get the most out of fresh food
  • reduce food waste
  • recycle leftovers in compost bins and worm farms
  • save money!

The program offers online resources to help you plan your weekly menu, find recipes for foods in season and ways to use up your left over veggies. It also provides handy tips for storing your fresh food, minimising waste and composting leftovers.

The Food Know How Program is a partnership between five Melbourne councils including the City of Maribyrnong, initiated by the City of Yarra and Cultivating Community.
