Food waste is a big deal in the United States, with global implications when it comes to climate change.  On a day to day basis, you might feel like you don’t waste much food, but here are a few quick facts.

Our Rethink Food Waste CHallenge has kicked off! To learn more about the challenge, and tools to reduce (and prevent) wasted food in your own home, please visit our Rethink Food Waste Challenge webpage.
