Food waste Must End!

Perfectly good food is being wasted in enormous amounts by grocery stores, restaurants, schools, and even by people in their own home. Something must be done to control this wastefulness. Everyone has a part in preserving food. It's up to you to do yours.

Thinking about food waste is one thing, but seeing the numbers puts it into a whole new perspective.


Daily Table selling food past its sell by date

Food is not necessarily bad once it has past its sell by date. If every grocery store continued to sell their food paste the sell by date, there would be a lot less food being wasted.

What can you do?

There are many ways to go about the issue of food waste. There are steps you can take that get to the root of the problem and there are steps that aren't as dramatic, but still help the cause. In your own home you can make an effort to waste less food by being conscientious of the food you have and eating it before it has to go to waste. If you want to get more involved in the cause, you can talk to your grocery store manager about what can be done to eliminate the food that they may be throwing out (taking a hint from Daily Table). You could try to organize a way to collect food that would be wasted and send it to a shelter or soup kitchen. If you want to see what can be done on an even larger scale, you can contact your state legislator to raise this issue to their attention and see if there's anything that they can do.
