  • Reflection Question
    Food Weekly Meal Planning
    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four in the US spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. Does this surprise you? Where would you rather use this money?

    Yes - this for sure surprised me. Personally, I don't realize how much this adds up when I throw food out. Definitely makes me more aware about my food waste.
