According to research carried out by WRAP (the UK’s Waste and Resources Action Programme ), the average UK household throws away enough food to make 6 meals every week

(The waste costs almost £60 a month per family, but, according to farming UK if you add it all together it’s worth a whopping £12.5 billion a year. 

The top three foods that we are throwing away uneaten are those every day essentials: bread, potatoes and milk. The equivalent of 24 million slices of bread, 5.8 million potatoes and 5.9 million glasses of milk are wasted daily.)
