#INFOGRAPHIC: Food Waste By The Numbers

As the man of the house I do my best to mitigate food wastage in my fridge (the place where fresh food goes to die). Sometimes the wife and kids make fun of me, calling me curmudgeonly. But when you see the numbers above and do the math, it really isn't a laughing matter.

How to reduce food waste in your home:

  1. Eat the food you buy.
  2. Check your fridge before you go grocery shopping to keep your food and your money from going to waste. Unless you are shopping for non-perishables or for next week's backyard barbecue there really is no need to stock up on food you didn't eat after your last trip to the grocery store.
