Challenges

Planning

Gleaning

I will glean backyard produce and create a recipe plan for full utilization, i.e. sharing with friends, canning, preserving, etc.

One-Time Challenge

Planning

Date Labels Demystified

I will not toss food once it is past the best buy date. "Expiration" dates misleadingly refer to quality, not safety. Use your senses and best judgement.

Food Waste Tracking

Ready. Set. Record!

  • Reflection Question
    Planning Date Labels Demystified
    What is your first reaction when you see an item that is past its "Best By" date? Where do you think this reaction comes from?

    Ugh I always throw it away by that date because I used to not listen to the date and I have gotten food poisoning from rotten food so.. I rather throw it out than get sick again

    Great! I made the correct amount of food for three people. The leftovers will be used for lunch tomorrow

    Good! I only wasted half a slice of bread after I  decided not to eat it midway into eating my sandwich
