Good Things #11: Solving the Food Waste Problem

For Suzanne Mooney, a meeting with Robert Egger, the founder of the DC Central Kitchen, changed her life. He showed her that one person could make a difference to a community and to peoples’ lives. Originally a broadcast journalist with the BBC, Suzanne then worked for the United Nations, before she moved to Malaysia and founded The Lost Food Project, with the help of like-minded souls. From small beginnings, the Lost Food Project has made a huge impact on reducing food waste in the Klang Valley, providing support to lower-income communities, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. They were even instrumental in working with the government on the Food Donor Protection Bill, which was approved by the Dewan Rakyat in October 2019. We catch up with Suzanne about how far the group has come, and find out about some new projects they are working on.
