Although composting at home is a great way to reduce food waste, it is much better to eat the food we purchase and grow than to compost it if we can.

Preventing wasted food helps the environment as well as our budgets. After all, it takes a lot of resources to get food from the fields to our homes.

And while no one buys food with the intention of throwing it away, based on recent estimates, the average Saint Paul household wastes up to $96 worth of food every month!

The good news is that preventing wasted food is simple, and something we can do right now with no additional technology or equipment!
That is why we have created these easy tips and tools to help you reduce food waste and save money.

Resources include a meal planner, food storage guides to learn how to make food last longer, top ten tips to help prevent wasting food - including videos and worksheets to help you learn about what you are wasting and how to prevent it.
