This year was proclaimed the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables, with the official slogan: “Fruits and vegetables, your dietary essentials.”
In the United States alone, over 70 billion pounds of food are wasted. This means that enough food is thrown out every year to feed 2 billion people.
Alarming news when, at least 800 million of the world’s population suffers from hunger.
What can we do at home to help?
Eat ugly! There are a number of different distributors of ugly food that are working to end food waste.
We encourage you to plan your weekly grocery shopping, checking out the produce bin in your fridge before you buy more, and let your local grocery store know that you will buy imperfect food.
These are small changes that will have a positive impact on the amount of produce we discard.
