Join the fight against wasted food on April 28th, 2021, for Stop Food Waste Day. Celebrated on the last Wednesday of Earth Month (April), Stop Food Waste Day aims to raise awareness of the critical food-waste issue while sharing practical and impactful solutions to shift behaviors and create change.
- 40% of food in America is wasted
- The average American family of four loses at least $1,500 each year on wasted food
