Forgotten leftovers. Old milk. Half-eaten meals. Do you find yourself throwing away food but wishing there was a better way?
We’re Make Food Not Waste–a community of people who know that food is better eaten than wasted. It’s better for your budget, better for our community, and better for our planet.
As a country, we throw away 40% of all of the food we grow. When we throw away food, we throw away all of those resources that went into growing, transporting, selling and cooking it. And when it breaks down in landfills, it gives off the powerful greenhouse gas methane which is a big part of why our climate is getting hotter.
Fortunately, it’s easy to cut down on what gets thrown away! First step? Join us! Sign up to hear about upcoming events, volunteer opportunities and new ways to cut waste where you live and work.
