Weddings can be an expensive occasion, with couples and families spending thousands on flowers, decorations and food for their guests.

But what happens when the food isn’t finished by the end of the event? Most of the time it’s thrown away, and isn’t that just a waste?

Thankfully, there is What A Waste, a Malaysian organisation on a mission to reduce food waste in Malaysia. They recently took to their Facebook page to showcase the amount of food they managed to donate to the unfortunate, thanks to an amazing couple who donated their leftover wedding feast.

“What A Waste has been advocating for eco-green weddings to redefine the poetics of green romance. This luncheon food rescue mission was wrapped up in 43 minutes with all rescued food immediately brought to be distributed to our families in PPR Kerinchi. We are just so happy to get back to what we do best,” What A Waste wrote.
