Its Food Waste Prevention Week!

Farm Share is joining the Food Conservation Alliance, EPA Region IV, Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Recycle Florida Today, Sustainable Events Network, Florida & Caribbean, and Florida Atlantic University to launch “Florida Food Waste Prevention Week” happening April 5-9, 2021. This public-private partnership aims to raise awareness about food waste prevention, protecting Florida’s environment, and reducing food insecurity.

About 3 million tons of food go to waste each year, while nearly 1 in 5 food-insecure Floridians lack consistent access to nutritious food. Florida Food Waste Prevention Week challenges organizations and communities to become Food Waste Reduction Heroes and consider how they can change their behaviors in their homes, workplaces, communities, and recreational destinations.

“We know firsthand how important reducing food waste is, and there’s an opportunity to shift much-needed food resources to the more than 3.5 million Floridians who experience food-insecurity daily,” said Farm Share CEO and President Stephen Shelley. “By keeping nutritious food from going to waste, we can help Floridians find their next meal and help them live healthier and more productive lives. Farm Share was founded on this principle.”

Farm Share and partnering organizations encourage Floridians to review food waste in their homes since up to 40% of all food waste occurs at the household level. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, a family of four on average could save about $1,500 annually while reducing 960 pounds of food waste.

Thank you for this information. In my practice, I encountered issues with my studies. I did not have enough time to prepare essays or term papers. There are many duties, but not all of them can be completed owing to time constraints. I was encouraged to use help from experts that write my paper for cheap . I tried it and don't regret it. I saved my time, started visiting my friends more frequently, and eventually returned to traveling.

I adore events like street food festivals. I make an effort to go to these activities, but sometimes my schedule at the university prevents me from doing so. In order to finish my projects on time, I turned to thesis writing services at https://www.phdresearchproposal.org/ I can now travel and attend these kinds of events.
