Discarding imperfect produce. Leaving leftovers behind. Overlooking ingredients in our fridges. All this contributes to 130 billion pounds of food wasted each year in the U.S. (EPA).
Stopping this epidemic may seem overwhelming, but there are simple solutions we can make every day that allow us to reduce food waste, while also getting more nutrition. By getting creative in the kitchen, we can ensure wasted food doesn’t become wasted nutrition.
