Decreasing Food Waste at Your Home
Most people don't realize how much food they throw away every day — from uneaten leftovers to spoiled produce.
About 95 percent of the food we throw away ends up in landfills or combustion facilities. In 2014, we disposed of more than 38 million tons of food waste. By managing food sustainably and reducing waste, we can help businesses and consumers save money, provide a bridge in our communities for those who do not have enough to eat, and conserve resources for future generations.
