Help reduce food waste this holiday season!

Each day in the US approximately one pound of food per person is wasted. Some food products never leave the farm, some get lost or spoiled during distribution, and the rest gets thrown away once purchased. This could be enough to feed every undernourished person on the planet. Reducing food waste could also reduce the impact of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions. As you prepare for Thanksgiving and the upcoming holidays, think of ways you can reduce food waste in your home by practicing proper food storage, meal preparation, and composting.
