Reducing Food Waste for Earth Week

Celebrate Earth Week this year by cutting back on trash!  Recently, the United States Department of Agriculture developed a new infographic, “Let’s Talk Trash,” to educate consumers about reducing food waste.  Their website has great tips on topics such as food product dating and freezing leftovers.

The Food and Drug Administration’s fridge and freezer chart is another handy tool for quickly determining how long food items will stay fresh.  And, foodsafety.gov provides guidelines about how long food will stay safe following a power outage.

Happy Earth Day!
