FIFO

First in First out to avoid food waste

A convenient way to avoid spoiling or wasting food is to use a First-in First-out method for food storage. Sort foods by expiration, earliest dates in front of those with later dates so you’re sure to use up food before it goes bad.

Why is reducing food waste so important? When landfilled, organic waste decomposes and generates methane, a greenhouse gas contributing to climate change. Organic waste prevention and composting are real ways you can help mitigate climate change.
