Looking for ways to reduce food waste? Freezing is a great way to store most foods to keep them from going bad until you are ready to eat them. You can use the FoodKeeper tool on www.foodsafety.gov for information on how to safely store different foods to maintain freshness and quality.
Why do we want to reduce food waste? 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.
