The Lowdown

Forty percent of our nation’s food supply never makes it into our bellies.  Forty percent rots in landfills, emitting methane into the environment, while so many people in the U.S. and across the globe lack food security.  Not okay.

Food is wasted at many levels: during production and distribution, in grocery stores and restaurants, and in our own households.  The average American family discards 25% of the food it purchases.

While change is necessary at every level, the first steps we can take are in our own home.  Join my family in our 2013 New Year’s Resolution: Stop wasting food.

  1. I’m planning on getting this New Year’s resolution started this week by coming up with a better plan for buying food for the family with the specific goal in mind of throwing less food away. Will update soon!
