Reduce Food WasteAmericans waste 40% of the food we produce. So an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) task force developed a toolkit to help us waste less. Will you add your voice to support it?

Before you answer, consider these statistics:

Food waste is not just a problem in and of itself. It’s a a problem that — if solved — could help solve other problems, like hunger, poverty, and environmental deterioration. So Food Shift convened a group of powerhouse individuals and organizations to develop a toolkit to help communities make a dent.

Food: Too Good to Waste provides communities with tools and strategies to help families and individuals reduce food wasted at home. EPA approval and funding would allow Food: Too Good to Waste to launch a coordinated national campaign on Earth Day on April 22, 2014. Love Food Hate Waste, a food waste initiative in the United Kingdom, utilized a similar approach, alongside the work of civic society organizations, to achieve a reduction in food waste by 21 percent since 2007.

This group of leaders needs you to sign a petition to encourage the EPA to approve and fund the Food: Too Good to Waste toolkit before Earth Day 2014.
