JUNE’S THEME: FIGHT FOOD WASTE
Did You Know?
Did you know that around 40% of all food in the United States is wasted? Food waste is a contributor to climate change because when food is wasted, we are also wasting ALL of the water, energy, and resources that went into growing, transporting, and selling that food! That’s why this June, we’re focusing on how you can fight food waste and help save our precious resources and even save money!
