According to the FDA, food waste is estimated at between 30-40 percent of the food supply at a cost of more than $161 billion. Food is the single largest category of material placed in municipal landfills and represents wasted nourishment that could have helped feed families in need across the country and in our own communities, Additionally, water, energy, and labor used to produce wasted food could have been employed for other purposes. Effectively reducing food waste will require cooperation among federal, state, tribal, and local governments, faith-based institutions, environmental organizations, communities, consumers, and the entire supply chain. Jennifer will introduce us to simple, yet effective ways we can start as individuals to becoming smarter with food consumption and effective waste management. Every little bit of change can make a difference.
