Abstract

Food waste has become a global issue in recent years.In the light of The Sun Daily (2014), there is a large amount of food wastes which is 8,000 tons produce per day in Malaysia while this amount is able to feed six million of people.On the other hand, Malaysian has less awareness and knowledge to the environmental issue nowadays.In fact, the food waste that we created every day has lots of the negative impact towards the environment.The food waste will influence the stink, climate, water, land and biodiversity. This study aims to study the food waste awareness among UUM students, the effect of the social network to food waste practice and also the effect of food waste awareness to food waste behavior.The data was collected via a questionnaire survey targeting UUM students and analyzed with SPSS v.22 statistical technique. The results of descriptive statistical analyzes show high awareness to food waste among UUM students.Since this is a preliminary study, more empirical works need to be done to generalize the findings.
