Abstract: This is a study made to evaluate if the initiative “San Sebastian sin desperdicio” is effective or not. First, a research about the topic and the initiatives to fight food loss and waste have been done, followed by one in-depth interview to restaurants’ managers and a survey to consumers to obtain the results. The most important conclusion is that the citizens are not aware of this initiative, so more visibility would be convenient.

Key words: food waste; sustainability; restaurants; Basque country
