How to Help
Combat Food Waste
Meal plan and make a list! Lists help you make careful decisions on what and how much you buy.
Shop grocery stores that offer misshapen food at a discount.
Shop prepared meals at the deli which allows grocery stores to make use of imperfect produce.
Take home leftovers from restaurants.
Encourage restaurants and cafeterias to donate leftovers.
Use FoodKeeper or other apps for food expiration reminders to keep your fridge fresh.
Help your local schools and businesses make a difference by spearheading participation in the USDA Food Waste Challenge.
Ask your local government for a curbside food-scrap collection service.
Share the bounty of your home garden with your community through ampleharvest.org.
