Reducing Food Waste

Mom always said, “clean your plate,” but did you know there are startling statistics to support her in the fight against food waste? In 2014, Americans threw away more than 38 million tons of food. This adds up economically, with a total loss of about $2,000 worth of wasted food per year for an average American household. Most of this waste ends up in landfills, which can affect our planet and our air quality. Changing household behavior is the best way to make an impact. Follow the tips below for better meal planning, which can lead to money saved, less food waste, and a healthier planet.
