Food Waste Tracking

Ready. Set. Record!

For each day during the food waste tracking week, record your food waste. This action accepts one entry per day, so be sure to enter one total for food waste across all of your meals, or weigh all of your food waste once at the end of each day. Please use ounces for unit of measurement.

    I have found that being on a particular diet for health can be contradictory with trying to not waste food. "Do I eat this before it spoils and eat too much or keep healthy and waste spoiled food".".

    I made a slow cooker meal yesterday.  Yum. My own recipe.  Let it cool on the counter. Forgot about it til the morning. Sob. Had to toss more that 3 pounds of food.

    I haven't counted cat food (the cat's, not mine). Should I ?

      Glad i read the comments, because i'd totally capture "members" of my household. HAHA

      Hi Daniel, great question! The EcoChallenge is only capturing food waste for people, so you wouldn't count cat food.

    I  don't  have  a scale or  instructions  yet.
