In the U.S., up to 40% of all food produced goes uneaten, and about 95% of discarded food ends up in landfills. Wasted food is a big problem.
Decomposing food waste creates methane and contributes to global warming. Globally, one-third of food is thrown away uneaten. Reducing food waste by 15% could feed more than 25 million Americans a year.
You can reduce your food waste by planning meals ahead of time, freezing the excess and eating leftovers.
Don’t keep this to yourself. Share with someone who needs to know and start a conversation.
