Be Watchful of Food Waste

1458From the farm to your kitchen table, waste happens at all points in the food supply chain. In the U.S., 40% of our food goes uneaten. Globally, there is enough wasted food each year to feed 1 billion hungry people. Unfortunately, fruits and vegetables are most likely to go to waste, and they are among the most important foods to our health.*

You can minimize food waste by shopping smart, only buying what you need, planning your meals, and sticking to grocery lists. Also, be willing to buy less-than-perfectly shaped and colored fruits and vegetables, which may look funny, but are perfectly good to eat.
