Reducing Food Waste 2018

 

 

Food is wasted in America at alarming rates, which in turn can challenge our farmland and water supply; contribute to greenhouse gas emissions; and squander financial resources. While wasted food happens across the entire food supply chain, the majority happens at home. And, the majority of that wasted food is fruit and vegetables.

 

Join us in the movement to reduce food waste! Please use the following resources to educate yourself, your friends and family, as well as clients and consumers, about the growing problem of food waste and how each of us can play a part in curtailing it. #FoodWasteMatters

The (Re)Purpose of Food: Reducing Wasted Food at Home
Home is where the waste is. Forty-three percent of food waste occurs at home. It stems from a variety of reasons: we didn't make the recipe we planned, we ate out rather than cooked, or can't think of a way to use it - or repurpose it. Regardless of why, the loss in dollars and impact on the environment add up. Registered dietitians encourage fruits and vegetable consumption, yet they are some of the most wasted food. From purchase to cooking, Judy Barbe, MS, RDN, Founder of LiveBest, will provide ideas to reduce food waste that can be implemented at home, shared with the media, in retail, and with community clients to be part of the solution to this global concern.
