All that food waste is a terrible waste of money and natural resources.
Think about it:
- The average family spends $1,500 a year food it simply dumps.
- And 25% of our America’s fresh water goes into producing food that never gets eaten.
- Reducing food waste by even one third could feed all 50 million food-insecure Americans.
The good news: there’s something you can do about it. The better news: it’s easy. And you’ve got everything you need, right in your refrigerator.
In my next few posts, I’ll be sharing some information from Save the Food, a new partnership between the Ad Council and National Resources Defense Council. I’ll share ways that you can help save the food and perhaps some money for you and/or your family in the process. I’ll share smart shopping info, meal planning information and food storage tips that will help you cut food waste, while saving money and the planet.
