40% of the food wasted in the U.S. is wasted at home, but our current food system makes less wasteful habits and behaviors really challenging! So we help our customers learn easy and accessible ways to save food at home—these are often tips we learn from our customers themselves and their creativity in the kitchen! When you receive your first order, we include a storage guide that helps you know where to keep items in your fridge or in your pantry.
In addition to knowing how to store products in the right place, we can all use creative support in menu planning and cooking. Our blog and social media feature lots of fun recipes and tricks to use up produce hiding in your fridge corners as well as ways to incorporate parts of produce you might typically toss. Here are a few posts to get you started:
