The American Farm Bureau Federation launched a “No Taste for Waste” campaign this week to increase consumer awareness of food waste. Partners include Land O’Lakes SUSTAIN, Valent BioSciences Corporation, FLM Harvest, the CropLife Foundation and Meredith Agrimedia.
The campaign’s goal is to highlight how some farmers reduce waste in their daily practices by donating excess food, using “cosmetically challenged” crops for other products or capturing energy with on-site digesters.
Along with a “bookazine” called “Waste Less, Save Money!” that will be sold in grocery stores, the campaign’s website also has resources for consumers. These resources include basic food waste statistics, recipes and meal planning tools.
