Between 33-50% of all food produced globally is never eaten, and the value of this wasted food is worth over $1 trillion. Meanwhile, 800 million people go to bed hungry every night. Each and every one of them could be sufficiently fed on less than a quarter of the food that is wasted in the USA, UK and Europe each year.
Today, take part in the NOW!'s #SaveFood challenge and show us some innovative recipes that you can make with the leftovers from the holidays.
You can share a picture with us and all your friends, below it's a quick and easy caption to use!
Did you know that food waste is really, really bad for the environment. It takes a land mass larger than China to grow the food each year that is ultimately never eaten – land that has been deforested, species that have been driven to extinction, indigenous populations that have been moved, soil that has been degraded – all to produce food that we then just throw away.
Today, I am participating in @NOW!'s #GreenDecember #SaveFood challenge and use the leftovers from the holiday to prepare this delicious meal!
