Love Food Friday!
Love Food Friday Food Waste Elimination Tip #8:
Chef Chris Giegel
Sometimes, despite our best efforts, we wind up with an excess of food—canned goods, perishables, meal leftovers. The best way to minimize waste is to SHARE!
- If you made too much for dinner and no one in your family wants to eat it anymore, bring it to work and share with co-workers. They often enjoy something new, especially if they don’t have to cook it themselves.
- If you find yourself with an excess of perishable and canned goods there are always food banks, homeless shelters, and other organizations that would be more than happy to take your excess and use it for a good cause. A simple internet search will help you find resources in your area. It’s always a great feeling to know that you’ve avoiding wasting food and used it to benefit someone in need.
*Anne’s note: My crew of guys at the feed yard LOVE it when I bring leftover food and baked goods to work with me. It’s a great way to both reduce food waste and make someone’s day just a little bit brighter🙂
