Prevent Edible Food Waste

Food is too essential to throw away. Students from Jason Ewing's 5th grade class at John Green Elementary have transformed into Food Rescuer Action Heroes! Through their partnership with StopWaste's Food Too Good to Waste Action Project, they provide strategies and solutions on how to Stop Food Waste! Their video won "Honorable Mention" in the Commission for Environmental Cooperation and UN Environment's Make #NotWasting Food a Way of Life  video contest in 2017.

The average family of four throws away $1,600 worth of food annually. Visit and learn to make small shifts in how you shop, prepare and store food, so you can toss less, eat well, simplify your life, save money and keep the valuable resources used to produce and distribute food from going to waste.
