The final week of the Rethink Food Waste Challenge is about to begin. The challenge began on May 14th: 213 households signed up to participate! Learn more about the challenge here.
Folks who entered their wasted food data for at least 3 of the 4 weeks of the challenge will be entered into the grand prize drawings. 2 people will win $440 worth of Harvest Bucks from Dome Grown Produce!
$440 is a lot to spend at the Farmer’s Market. We know! And we just learned lots about how not to waste food. So you have some options.
—Eat your heart out! And preserve those veggies. Canned goods make great gifts, after all. Or freeze it for future use!
—Give a card or two away to your friends.
—Donate a card to a food-related cause. Check out the Grow and Give Program through the High Desert Food and Farm Alliance. HDFFA works with NeighborImpact to get fresh produce to folks who need it. Because everyone deserves access to fresh and healthy food.
—Donate a card to the Family Kitchen whose mission it is to serve anyone who needs a nutritious meal in a safe and caring environment.
