  • Reflection Question
    Food Keep Track of Wasted Food
    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. Where would you rather use this money?

    Anywhere! $1,500 is a lot of money. Keeping a log forces us to pay more attention to the food we waste, and as a result, we can reduce the amount of food we waste.
