U.S. It is estimated that 20 pounds of food is wasted per person per month. By reducing food waste through buying appropriate quantities, storing foods properly, cooking what is needed and composting, consumers can save money and reduce the amount of food going to landfills. The guidelines recommended in The Food Keeper can help consumers use food while at peak quality and reduce waste.
