This topic is earnest and comes straight from the heart.

Anyone who knows me well (especially my dear husband and kids) knows that I cannot stand to waste food; there is nothing wrong with leftovers (in fact they make the rest of the week’s meal planning easier!) and I believe that NO human being should be hungry!

The USDA tells us that Americans are wasting 31% of the food they buy!!  AND during the holidays, foods waste in American households and restaurants increases significantly, as you will read in the attached blog.

Something to think about:

  • In 2013, 49.1 million Americans lived in food insecure households, including 33.3 million adults and 15.8 million children.
  • Breaking that down – 1 in 6 Americans struggles to get enough to eat.
