Join the Mission to Reduce Food Waste

Family in kitchen.

Many households are guilty of wasting food, but this doesn’t have to be the case. Why not join the mission to reduce food waste by following these suggestions?

    • Plan ahead – plan your weekly menu; it’s easier to buy just enough of the right ingredients so little is wasted.
    • Store it properly – extend its shelf life by storing your food properly. Potatoes and onions belong outside the fridge; when they start to sprout, it’s time to use them.Fruits that are ripening too quickly should be moved into the fridge to slow the ripening process.
    • Freeze it – many of your leftovers can be frozen; try freezing single servings of pesto, tomato paste, and dressing in ice cube trays, so that you only pop one as needed.
    • Use Google if you don’t know what to do with your odds and ends, turn to the Internet. You’ll find simple, quick recipes online for just about anything from soups to stir-fries.
