Reducing Food Waste

Girl Scout Produces Video Raising Awareness to Reduce Food Waste

Food waste is a huge problem - did you know that globally each year 1.4 billion tons of food are wasted? For her Gold Award Project, Montgomery resident Josie Dambeck focused on spreading awareness about this important issue. Food is wasted at every stage of production, but the largest portion of food waste comes from households. There are many simple ways you can reduce the food waste in your home. For example, reducing the food you buy, storing food properly, and understanding food date labels (they often indicate quality, not safety). We can all do something to be a little bit less wasteful with our food. To learn more, watch her video above. To show your support, complete the pledge card on Josie's website and share the address with others.
