In the U.S., we currently waste 63 million tons of food annually at a cost of $218 billion every year! This squanders water and other scarce natural resources, generates greenhouse gas emissions that exacerbate climate change, and occurs while one in seven Americans struggles with food insecurity.
Coming in at #3 on Drawdown’s list of most effective strategies to reverse climate change, food waste solutions provide an unparalleled opportunity to generate environmental, social, and economic benefits while addressing a problem that nobody supports.

- The existing food waste landscape
- Trends in solutions innovation
- Practical tips for reducing food waste in the home and workplace
