Tips to Reduce Food Waste
We can all play a part in reaching the national food waste reduction goal to reduce food waste by 50% by the year 2030. Start using these tips today to reduce food waste, save money, and protect the environment.
At the Grocery Store
When at the store, buy only what you need and stick to your shopping list.
In the Kitchen
Check the temperature setting of your fridge. Keep the temperature at 40° F or below to keep foods safe. The temperature of your freezer should be 0° F.
Follow the 2-Hour Rule. For safety reasons, don’t leave perishables out at room temperature for more than two hours, unless you're keeping it hot or cold. If the temperature is above 90° F, food shouldn’t be left out for more than one hour.
