Save the Food: Tools to saving food

Medium: , ,

Food is being wasted at an alarming rate. And we – consumers – are the largest source of it. More than grocery stores and restaurants combined. But there’s good news: we can do something about it.

 

This SAVE THE FOOD website offers the following:

 

GUEST-IMATOR: A dinner party calculator that estimates how much food you need to keep your guests happy and healthy. Just tell it who’s coming to dinner and find out exactly how much to make.

MEAL PREP Mate: Create custom meal plans and perfectly-portioned shopping lists that help you kick food waste to the curb

PRACTICE SMARTER PLANNING: Not sure where to start? A good plan is often the easiest and most impactful. Try out this collection of prep and storage tools or browse our tips to become a food waste warrior.

NEW RECIPES: Give scraps and that “past-its-prime” food a new (and delicious) second life! Learn how to cook with everything from cilantro stems to that overripe avocado on the counter.

BECOME A STORAGE PRO: When you store food correctly, it lasts longer (like keeping asparagus in a vase like you would with flowers). Our interactive storage guide has all the info you need to keep food fresh.

 

LEARN WHAT FOOD WASTE REALLY COSTS: IT COSTS LABOR, RESOURCES, TIME, AND AT THE END OF THE DAY, MONEY. A 4-PERSON FAMILY CAN LOSE AT LEAST $1500 A YEAR ON WASTED FOOD.
