A Good Time To Go “Back to School” on Food Waste
National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association Launches Educational Food Waste Initiative for Teens, Teachers and Parents
HARRISBURG, Pa., Aug. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Food waste is the number one component found in America’s landfills. And there is a reason for that. More food than we’d like to admit routinely gets tossed in the trash. In fact, 40 percent of all food produced in the United States is discarded. Twenty percent of the food we buy is never eaten.
The National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association (NFRA), in partnership with education curriculum specialists Young Minds Inspired (YMI), has developed a No Taste for Food Waste educational program that is addressing food waste by educating future consumers about the problem. Targeted at middle and high school students in family and consumer/environmental science and health classes, the curriculum materials, which include a teacher’s guide, lesson plans, reproducible student activities and more, have been distributed to more than 65,000 targeted educators across the country.
