Meal Planning to Reduce Food Waste

Knowing how you will use your food is key to preventing it from going to waste. Meal planning can be simpler than you think, and we’ve created tools to help you shop smarter and plan affordable, nutritious meals.

Shop Your Kitchen

Using ingredients that are already in your kitchen—including leftovers—saves time and money and cuts down on food waste. Check out these recipes that use some fridge and pantry staples.

Keeping Food Fresh

Proper storage can prolong the life of your food and help reduce waste. For example, bananas, tomatoes, fresh herbs, and bread last longer on the kitchen counter, while milk, eggs, berries, and cut or cooked produce are best kept in the fridge. For more details, check out this clip from our webinar.
