As Americans we throw out enough food each year to fill up Rose Bowl Stadium every day. I repeat – our wasteful habits are enough to fill a 90,000 seat stadium with uneaten food every. single. day. That’s a problem – a huge, outrageously out of control problem that we need to get in check…
Enter – the Beef Checkoff’s 30 Day Food Waste Challenge.
Waste Less with the 30 Day Food Waste Challenge
They say it can take just twenty-one days to form a new habit. If they are correct, then the 30 Day Food Waste Challenge is a great way to reform current habits and get started on the path to reduced food waste. The challenge offers simple solutions to common food wasting conundrums, as well as delicious recipe ideas.
How the Challenge Works
The challenge begins with five days of assessing your food wasting situation, providing a baseline to track progress. Once you’ve got your baseline, it’s time to challenge yourself with twenty days of actionable tips, useful printables, and simple tasks. The final five days are reserved to reassess your food wasting situation and compare it to the baseline discovered in the first five days.
The 30 Day Food Waste Challenge has everything a good challenge should – self-assessment to help track progress, the tools needed to succeed, and reevaluation to see how far you’ve come. And did I mention the best news? The best news is that the 30 Day Food Waste Challenge and everything it provides is all FREE!
