  • No Taste for Waste Reducing food waste

Stop Wasting, Start Saving

Food waste is a growing problem in the U.S. The average American family throws away 25 percent of the food and beverages they purchase at a staggering cost of $1,600 per household annually*. No Taste For Waste is an initiative meant to inspire us to change how we purchase and eat food, manage our spending and take care of the world around us. Even the smallest improvements to our daily lives can have a big impact when we all work together.


The first step to curbing waste is reducing food loss on the farm. You might be surprised to know that today’s farmers continually improve their practices to be more efficient, sustainable and find uses for less-than-perfect crops. They are determined to grow quality food for families, using less land and resources than previous generations. Let’s explore how farmers are making a difference and how we can all work together to stop waste and start saving.

We’re lucky to be able to work with so many great volunteers and nonprofits that help get healthy food to hungry people in our community.”
