Americans waste 25% of the food they buy. That's like buying four bags of groceries and dropping one in the parking lot!
Reduce Food Waste, Save Money
We all waste food, that’s a fact. Another fact: no one likes wasting food. But something happens between the grocery store and the garbage can that leads each of us to toss almost 25 pounds of food per month.
What if we told you that there are proven ways to waste less food without making drastic changes to your lifestyle? The I Value Food: Too Good to Waste Challenge will help you pinpoint why waste happens in your home and find easy shifts in how you shop, store and prep food that leads to less waste.
No one is perfect. We’re not expecting anyone to eliminate food waste entirely. But through this program, many families have reduced food waste by up to 50%, saving hundreds of dollars per year!
In the first two weeks, you’ll measure how much food you waste to get a baseline number.
You'll track waste in a quart-size container (like a plastic deli container) or a quart-size zip-top bag. Use the same size container throughout the Challenge. Once you fill container, record it, throw it away the contents as usual, and start filling it again. Keep containers in the fridge or freezer if you’re worried about odor or pests.
3.Follow Tips & Log Waste
Each week, we’ll email you proven tips, strategies and tools. You’ll also get a reminder to log your weekly waste in our online Food Log.
4.Discover Your Savings
In the sixth week, you’ll see how much you reduced your waste. We think you’ll be surprised to find out how much food — and money — you’re capable of saving!
