Take Action: Fill Stomachs, Not Landfills

Tips to take action in regards to minimizing food waste

One of the best parts of spring is the delicious seasonal food we enjoy with friends and family.

REDUCE food waste by planning out your meal: Try to only buy and make what you need. Check what ingredients you already have at home. This will lower your shopping bill and eliminate extra food waste.



Hosting a spring picnic? Choose silverware that you can REUSE instead of disposable plates and utensils. If it is necessary to purchase disposable utensils, opt for ones you can RECYCLE.

RESPECT and engage with your community: 1 in 5 people in the U.S. don’t have adequate access to food, so consider giving leftovers to those who may be in need. You can donate food here!
