Whether it's moldy cheese, limp celery or long-lost leftovers in the back of the fridge, chances are you've wasted food this week. And you're not alone.
Americans waste about 25 percent of all food purchases — or about $1,600 a year. When we throw away food, we're also wasting all the water, energy and other resources used to produce, package and transport food to our plates.
Use our Food: Too Good to Waste toolkit to learn how to reduce food waste in your home. By making small shifts in how you shop, prepare and store food, you can save money.
