In 2013, we will reduce our contribution to food waste by grocery shopping consciously, ordering conservatively at restaurants, and utilizing leftovers. Our estimated savings through this endeavor will be donated to Philabundance, a local, multifaceted, hunger-ending organization. Through conversations, both in person and online, we will raise awareness of food waste in the U.S. and encourage others to join us in playing our part to create change.
According to a recent study, Americans throw away 40% of our nation's food supply. This reality is not good for our planet, nor our wallets. Join us in playing our part to whittle this statistic down to 0%. On 40 Percent, you will find chronicles of our family's challenges and successes in this endeavor, tips we discover along the way, recipes for dishes that no one will believe are the results of leftovers (Dad's a pro!), and information about this important issue.
