Do your part in Stop Food Waste Day this April 28!


Stop Food Waste Day is an international day of action in the fight against food waste, which is a serious and growing problem. Roughly one-third of the food produced globally is either lost or wasted every year.

Launched in 2017 by the Compass Group, the global leader in food service, on this day consumers, corporations, and influencers across +30 compass countries will work together to raise awareness of the critical food waste problem and inspire change.

Food waste has become a world wide problem due to a lack of understanding of how to effectively use food and conserve it. Food waste, however, can be stopped.

Stop Food Waste Day aims to change the statistics of food waste, continuing to decrease it over time. Eventually, the holiday hopes to help those in need to get the food they need and stop landfills from filling over.

You can show your support by looking up simple recipes to best use leftovers and fresh produce. Make a list before you go to the store to help conserve food usage.

Get in the habit of freezing leftovers. Revive wilted vegetables by washing them in water for 5 to 10 minutes. Make sure that when you freeze food, you remove as much air as possible for long lasting freshness. If you wish to help this cause then attend a compass group event hosted in many communities all over the world.

You can take a part in Stop Food Waste Day and contribute to your community. Do your part and save your food instead of letting so much go to waste!
