Why does wasted food matter? Wasting food has social, financial, and environmental implications. For starters, did you know that 40% of the food that is grown to be eaten in the world ends up getting wasted? Yet in Deschutes County, 1 in 8 people is food insecure, meaning they don’t always know where their next meal will come from?And perhaps most astounding of all, the average family of four tosses $1600 worth of food every year. We’re better than that. It’s time to rethink food waste, and we want to help you do it.We challenge you: pledge to waste less food! Because Wasted food is wasted money.
