Reduce your food waste


There are so many amazing people and business across the country working on our food waste issue. Let’s celebrate some of them!

I love encouraging and empowering people to reduce household food waste because it doesn’t require policy change, investment, or outside approval. The bigger picture can be overwhelming and meaningful change will require work on a multitude of fronts. If we do our small part to reduce food waste at home and learn about other initiatives, we might just have a social movement on our hands.
